I don't see him as a moderate economically. Too big an expansion of government, as I see it. Didn't stay true to his intent to cut pork spending either. So far, he's been moderate on military decisions not to pull out of Iraq; to actually step up forces in Afghanistan, he's assertive. Some of his proposed cuts in military spending could be dangerous, however.
I don't see him as a unifier at all, except, perhaps, among Democrats, but they don't account for all citizens. The latest report from the Homeland Security Office of Intelligence has endeavored to link groups that reject federal authority in favor of state or local authority with radical rightwing extremists (e.g. militia) activity. This is a very dangerous and divisive move by the Obama administration.
Obama appears to be an amateur on nearly every front. Thankfully, he does have a few judicious advisers, but they won't be found in Reid or Pelosi.
