US PRESIDENT Barack Obama awarded himself a B plus for his first 11 months in office in an interview with talk show queen Oprah Winfrey.
“A good solid B plus,” Obama said during an ABC network Christmas at the White House special when Winfrey asked what grade he would give himself.
Obama said his administration “inherited the biggest set of challenges of any president since Franklin Delano Roosevelt”.
He had earned points for helping to stabilise the economy, setting a path out of Iraq and restoring America’s international image, he said.
“B plus because of the things that are undone. Healthcare is not yet signed. If I get healthcare passed, we tip into A minus,” he said.
