  •  That's just naive, and ahistorical (5+ / 0-)

    Go back through American history — we've only had 43 presidents prior to this one, and only about 15 of them got re-elected.  

    Of those that got re-elected, every one of them had disappointing second terms, both on the personal and political levels.  There has never been a second-term president who was more active or more successful than he was in his first term.  

    Shirley Chisholm was right. Our Republic is in deep trouble.
