  •  I'm optimistic that Obama will use his victory (2+ / 0-)

    to pummel the Republicans. At least in the short term. And for those nay-sayers remember he came in to the job in '09 and got some tough shit done and done quickly. He will feel revitalized after this win. The question is how long will that "second wind" last? And maybe "how far can we push him?"

    Attention rich bastards, this is real important,

    •  Me too - in Term 1 he always had Term 2 to worry (0+ / 0-)

      about.  Had to govern with that in mind -- he talked a lot about being willing to be a one-term prez but I saw every indicator that he was hungry for a 2nd term.  hence some of the compromises and carefulness.

      It will be interesting to see what President Obama does in his 2nd term -- this is the time when two-term presidents have the opportunity, at last, to fully consider what they want to be their American legacy.
