    in a couple of years, I'll be happy too. And happy to vote for him again. But until I see progress, I've got no other viable option (at least that I can see) other than withholding my vote.

    You could be right (and it wouldn't surprise me in the least if you were) about him trying to run out the clock in the hopes that he can point to some successes "on his watch," but without his actually having to expend political capital to achieve them. I'm less sure how I'd respond to a situation like that. I'd be happy at the outcome, of course, but probably less inclined to give Obama credit for it than he would otherwise like.
