Carli, I definately think he is more worried about trying to get things done - and what history thinks, than about whether he will "win" a second term. I really do think he will run however. And I expect he will eventually move into "election" mode and we will see a little more of the campaigner.

The only problem with this is that he's made quite a few presumptions in categorizing the "keys" as true or false.

I've been wondering an entirely different thing ... do you think Obama will or wants to RUN for a second term? Sometimes I get the impression, or feeling, that 1) maybe he really doesn't like the job; and 2) that he's aiming for a precedent-setting and historical presidency over and above a 2-term one.

What do you all think?

“Cowardice asks the question, 'Is it safe?' Expediency asks the question, 'Is it politic?' But conscience asks the question, 'Is it right?' And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but because conscience tells one it is right.” ~Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Very interesting.. But I don't get the one on the incumbant president is charismatic - as false. ??

Based on what? I think Obama is pretty charismatic for most people. And even the other side admits he can give a heck of a speech.

I pray he is right. Yes we can do it again!

" My goal is to live the truly religious life, and express it in my music. If you live it, when you play, there's no problem because the music is part of the whole thing. To be a musician is really something. It goes very,very deep. My music is the spiritual expression of what I am--my faith, my knowledge, my being." by John Coltrane
