record sales last year. resurgence mr. obama says was the result of the government bail out during the first year of his administration. >> we cannot and must not and we will not let our auto industry simply vanish. >> it wasn't a popular idea. critics thought the new president was over reaching, even cocky. but in hindsight he says, that's just what the economic crisis demanded. >> i might have benefited from being young and a little brash and not being as scared as i probably should have been. you know, there was probably some benefit to me thinking, we can fix this. and, you know, we'll figure it out. >> by some measures mr. obama did figure it out. he's overseen shrinking unemployment, a growing job market.

americans without health insurance and diplomatic breakthroughs on both climate policy and relations with cuba. but his foes say those gains have been overshadowed by the rise of isis, the trouble in syria. and terrorism at home. but what stands out even to his supporters has been his inability to be the unifying force that he has promised. >> the one thing that gnaws on me, is the degree of continued polarization. it's gotten worse over the last several years. andxd i think that in those early months my expectation was that we could pull the parties together a little more effectively. >> do you wish in hindsight that maybe campaigning on that notion of changing the tone in washington, do you wish you hadn't campaigned as hard on that promise? >> well, here's the thing.

think that there comes a point where you don't have fresh legs. and, you know, that's when you start making mistakes. or that's when you start thinking that you are what's important as opposed to the mission being more important. >> how much time do you wonder or spend thinking about what you have done might be undone if a republican ends up in the white house? >> well, you think about that. but what you discover when you're president is that the institutions and programs and things that you have put in place and built, if you've done a good job and you've done them sensibly, in some cases may need tinkering with, can be improved. but if they're good things, they're harder to undo than you think. >> he admits there were policies

happiest about my tenure coming to an end. >> where the obamas will live and what they may do post white house are all matters of great speculation. >> fired up! ready to go! >> but for now, the senator who campaigned on being fired up and ready to go is now ready to see if history will be kind or not. >> when i turn over the keys to the next occupant one thing i'm confident about, maybe why i don't feel obliged to yearn for a third term, is i'm very confident i'll be able to say that things are a lot better now than they were when i came into office. and, you know, that's a pretty good eight years worth of work. our clients have relied on us to bring our best thinking to their investments
