Candy Crowley is CNN’s chief political corespondent. So she has seen Washington politics confront many issues. Crowley is prepared to cover many of them but then there are always the crises that happen suddenly..
“One of the most important issues is the one we don’t know about. Something always comes up,” says Crowley. “So, we don’t know what that is going to be. The unknown will inevitably become an issue.”
Beyond the unknown, Crowley still thinks gun control and immigration are on the top of President Obamas to do list.
“I think guns is going to get his immediate attention because he wants to do that as quickly as he can,” says Crowley. That will be a tough fight but she believes the next issue will have bipartisan support. “[President Obama] has the best chance of getting a lot of what he wants because the Republicans want [immigration] off the table.”
Crowley also told WEBN Boston that President Obama will continue to work on the economy.
“Getting the economy going is still really what people are most interested in seeing get done,” says Crowley.
As President Obama starts his second term in office, he seems to have a lot to do in a little amount of time.
“He doesn’t have a lot of time. Maybe fourteen, fifteen, months before people start to look at the midterms,” says Crowley. “So it is going to be a very hectic year plus, I think, for the Obama White House.”
