    I know it's early and a lot can happen and/or change.

    But if the general mood twards progs stays the same, Obama is not a valid choice. When near zero Dems are running on what they have done to help obama now, and are still expected to lose big, they will have to run against him if they have any hope in 2012. IF things continue as they are.

    There are a lot of factors to consider. Will a conservative majority pull obama to the right? Will the Tea Party fever pitch fade? etc...

    But lets assume obama is out.

    Do the dems sacrifice him and prep for 2016? Or who will get the nod?

    When the GOP does nothing but gridlock and try to impeach Obama for two years, Obama will certainly be reelected in 2012.

    Obama may have low approval ratings, but the GOP has no one right now that can beat him.
    Plus, the right under estimates how well Obama can campaign. If the republicans take over the house, Obama will for sure be re elected.

    State by state elections is a little different. ;)

    Mitt Romney nor Palin can beat him today, and in two years if the GOP wins the house, there is no way either one of them will beat him then. Who else do they have?
    If the GOP wants to beat Obama they can not go in the direction they are going in. I do not see a total tranformation, especially with the Tea Party taking over the GOP.

    I will also add Clinton was re elected in 96', after the republicans took back congress.

    The right is terrified of Obama, that is clear. Or they wouldn't keep bringing up the 2012 election scenario without him.

    Clinton embraced Republicans' agenda and reinvented himself.

    Obama won't do anyting of the sort.

    It's funny watching Hillary distance herself from both the mid-terms and 0bama...

    My understanding is that the DNC definitely wants Sarah Palin to run in 2012

    All their problems will be solved
