This week, President Obama faced criticism and praise as he tackled a host of issues here at home and abroad.
Domestically, the President has zeroed in on health care reform, a plan to tighten controls on the financial sector, and granting benefits to same-sex partners of federal employees.
But what may be overshadowing his domestic agenda are pressing matters overseas: the unrest following the Iranian election and reports of a growing nuclear threat from North Korea.
