'years of lightning, day of drums': the epitaph of obama's political career

nov 2nd, 2010

fair to say he will be a one-term, lame-duck president here on out? 

i don't know if it's racism or fury at being bamboozled by a pied piper, but anyway obama has united a lot of americans in one sentiment: they do not like him.

Will this electoral debacle lead to a new round of fratricidal blood-letting among Democrats?

bill clinton did say that hillary will be a candidate -- diplomatically to avoid the impression that obama is a 1-termer -- in 2016. she'll be, what, 80? then?
