    I mean he wants to transform this nation with hope and change. It looks like the voters are dissagreeing with his socialist agenda including his healthcare. Tommorrow will be like the assault on the Alamo and Palin will come out looking great after this. So if Hillary decides to run and Obama decides not to run for a second term..............wouldn't that make him a quitter?

    Yes,but he will run. Bet on that. Megalomaniacs never give up power voluntarily. This is just fact.

    No. He will have stuck out his elected term - something quitter Sarah didn't do.

    i think if he quit BEFORE serving his full term, he would be considered a quitter...

    shoot, clinton was impeached, the republicans took over the house and senate if memory serves me in midterm elections, accusations of all kinds of 'gates', and HE STILL WON, reelection.... Obama will probably give it a shot and run for a second term...is what i am thinking...

    Actually, if he did not run for a second term, I think I would think of him as a heck of a lot smarter than I give him credit for. Who on earth wants the job in the first place let alone for two terms. And what would he lose by not running again? His pension is set for life anyway, why run again?

    Like I said, if he doesn't run again, what does he have to lose?

    Finishing your elected term is pretty much the least you can do. The fact she couldn't even to that...

    Of course I'm starting to come around to the idea she won't run. I think Obama would very much like her to run as he'd wipe the floor with her in a 48 state sweep. However Sarah's making a lot more money now and probably has more influence from the outside. Running and losing would just ruin the fun.

    Nothing wrong with deciding not to run for a second term, though not a snowball's chance of Barry making such a decision.

    Or, if he didn't run because party folks nominated someone else that obviously would be out of his control. But IMO that would only happen if tomorrow is an historical slaughter.

    If he stepped graciously aside in order to ensure that the best person to run the country was actually elected, I would consider him an honorable man. I don't really see it happening. That man has an ego the size of Texas.
