2006Judging from the way Obama has been handling the Gulf oil spill, he is not a good president.------
Judged from the way Obama has been handling the Gulf oil spill, he is not a good president. also correct
I think the first sentence sounds better. But grammatically speaking, if [judging] is a present participle, "Judging" is a verb. the sentence has mde a mistake of dangling modifier. I asked my English teacher (a Chinese national) on this and she said that [judging ] is now considered a preposition, Do you mean preposition or present participle?
so the first line is correct.
Is that really so? Thank you.
