hmm? Wouldn't their record speak for itself and let the cards fall where they may? Obama is our President, unfortunately but ALL next year and the rest of this year he isn't going to do his job. He is going to be on the trail, traveling around, begging for money and votes. Seems messed up. Wouldn't a confident incumbent just let their record speak for them and await the election and debate with the challenger? Seems an incumbent who has respect for the system would let their record do the talking and if the people deem it not good enough, gracefully step down and say "well, i tried. Good luck to the new guy." I dont understand why politics is so personal when it should be about accurately reflecting the will of the people.
