I see a narcissistic megalomaniac who isn't interested in Utopia as much as his "Legecy". With 'Organizing for Action' he has accomplished his dream on how Washington works. More than any time in history, money talks. Now it has a mainline into the presidency.
He wants to go down in history with Lincoln and FDR. He will go down in history, in any case!
"I always read a lot of Lincoln, and I'm reminded of his adage that with public opinion there's nothing you can't accomplish. Without it, you're not going to go very far." ~ Barack Obama
