In 500 years, will he be remembered as a hero or villain?
After this summer? Villain, all the way. He won in 2008 on principles that are nothing like what he's done, and the drones and NSA scandal would put him in a prime position for villainy in the Conduit universe. Recall that Adams originally enlists Ford's help under the pretense of stopping terrorism. I think real-world history will sympathize and acknowledge the political pressures Obama was/is under, but in the Conduit universe, he just has to be evil.
I've heard he passed an act or law that contradicts the 4th Amendment: right to privacy.
aaaaaaaaand I regret mentioning him haha --- Because I'm only a crack in this castle of glass. If you get the reference then this is for you... <3
