Was there some move that is beyond what was being presented to me that maybe a Churchill could have seen, or an Eisenhower might have figured out? - Barack Obama

  • What research have you done? I'll give you a hint - there is only one antecedent. – Mick Oct 3 '16 at 4:11

Yes, those are two relative pronouns. The move is the antecedent of both thats.

The main clause:

Was there some move?

relative clause 1:

the move is beyond what was being presented to me

relative clause 2:

Maybe a Churchill could have seen or an Eisenhower could have figured out the move.

The relative pronoun that replaces "the move" in both clauses which are then used to describe move in the main clause.
