    From the beginning he's governed as if liberal Democrats had nowhere else to go. It appears that he's right. How many will stay home on election day is yet to be seen. It's very likely, however, that most will hold their noses and pull the lever for Obama.

    Yeah, there must be an awful lot of that considering the low quality of most US political candidates.

    It now becomes an interesting question when it comes to his speech on thursday. If he does a lame performance, will Democrat politicians suddenly see it their obligation to save the party from another disaster like last time?

    This speech may be where he goes over the event horizon in his circling the drain maneuver.
