I don’t mind a world that makes life difficult for presidents. The office has been empowered far beyond what our founders intended, and the danger that poses is neatly offset by a skeptical populace that hopefully guards against excess.
We don’t need another president in training. Obama had his learning curve. It’ll be interesting to see him show us what he learned.
As a journalist I prefer a new president every four years. Like a stock broker, I thrive on churning.
But as an American, I’d like to see this president get a couple of years to do the right thing before he becomes a lame duck.
Our President deserves a second chance.
Obama Edge in Closing Polls
Nate Silver: “Among the 21 polls in battleground states on Saturday, 16 had Mr. Obama ahead as compared with just two leads for Mr. Romney; three other battleground state polls had the race tied. … Obama’s state polls continue to show more strength than they did just after the Denver debate. We are at the point where the polls would have to be biased against Mr. Romney (in a statistical sense) in order for him to win the Electoral College.”
