    in 2016.  
    I think he probably regrets that he didn't run in 2008, assuming that Hillary Clinton was unbeatable in the Dem primary.  He's not making that mistake again.

    WI-8 independent. Very reluctantly for Obama but support Tammy Baldwin with a bit more enthusiasm. Strongly opposed recall of Gov. Walker.

      Clinton wasn't unbeatable, obviously - but I'm pretty sure she was unbeatable by Mark Warner.

        in retrospect, Obama was probably the only one who could have beaten Hillary in 2008, by winning anti-war liberals, blacks and young people.  Perhaps Al Gore could have too, by uniting anti-war liberals and conservative/populist Democrats.  Warner would have to go after HRC in the second manner.  But Hillary's women and black base (the latter against anyone other than Obama) would probably have won her the primary against anyone else.

        I was a bit more enthusiastic about Obama in 2008 even though he was a FIB ("Fucking Illinois Bastard") and Bears fan, and voted for him in the primary and general.

        WI-8 independent. Very reluctantly for Obama but support Tammy Baldwin with a bit more enthusiasm. Strongly opposed recall of Gov. Walker.
