I can see eventually the tag as being the man who saved us from a true depression and later generations will see him as a hero like FDR. Remember that FDR divided and wasn't as popular in his tenure, either. As it became evident of the huge task FDR had before him, he made it to the short list of one of the greats. I am not a huge fan of Obama, either but he's far better than W and it's a darn good thing we didn't get that knee-jerk John McCain in there. I also don't think that Mr. "corporations are people" Romney would have been a good thing, either. If for some reason we have a nightmare in 2016 and elect someone like Perry or Cruz, then it will be sooner than later that we realize just how good Obama was in office. But if we get Mrs. Clinton in 2016 and she's anything like her husband and sits in the WH during a period of serious economic growth, then Obama may not be seen as having been a good president. I remember when this poll (or it could have been Fox) put Obama at 39% percent, so 42% percent is slightly better.
