The planning for now consists entirely of private conversations, with Obama aides at all levels indulging occasionally in closed-door 2012 discussions while focusing ferociously on the midterm elections and health care reform, the Democratic sources said. “The gathering storm is the 2010 elections,” one top official said.
But the sources said Obama has given every sign of planning to run again and wants the next campaign to resemble the highly successful 2008 effort.
His "highly successful" 2008 effort relied on the "Bush Sucks" strategy. So.... who is he going to run against in 2012?
Heh, from Allah:
Didn’t The One tell us just a few weeks ago that he’d rather be a great one-term president than a mediocre two-termer? I guess he’s … planning for mediocrity, then?
Regardless, Obama's busy attempting to secure his 2012 options while most of us are worrying about stuff a tad more immediate.
