ran 1.7 miles
Now that is refreshing. Even Chris Matthews is pointing out how flawed, disingenuous and unmotivated our president is. This man could be a pioneer in a possible mass-movement liberal media renaissance of enlightenment. Probably not, but I certainly enjoyed watching that video. There has been a lot of buzz for a long time about Obama being encouraged to step down for the sake of the Democratic Party, to be replaced by none other than Hillary Clinton. The gears may be grinding on a new Democratic machine.

Today ends week sixty-four of running against Obama. I ran 17.2 miles this week, averaging 2.46 miles per day.

In a story from the National Journal, written by Michael Catalini, he courts Hillary into the bigger picture and the title speaks for itself: “Democratic Pollsters: Obama Should Abandon Run for Second Term”. Two one-time Democratic pollsters, Patrick H. Caddell and Douglas E. Schoen, suggest Barack Obama should not run for a second term, as Harry Truman and Lyndon Johnson had decided not to, even though they could have.

Caddell was a pollster for Jimmy Carter and Schoen was a pollster for Bill Clinton. They both agree that “He (Obama) should abandon his candidacy for re-election in favor of a clear alternative, one capable not only of saving the Democratic Party, but more important, of governing effectively and in a way that preserves the most important of the president's accomplishments. He should step aside for the one candidate who would become, by acclamation, the nominee of the Democratic Party: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.”

The two pollsters argued one year ago that if Barack Obama pursued his excessively partisan path, the nation would be further divided and Congress would be gridlocked at the worst possible time.

“The result has been exactly as we predicted: stalemate in Washington, fights over the debt ceiling, an inability to tackle the debt and deficit, and paralysis exacerbating market turmoil and economic decline,” Caddell and Schoen wrote.

733.4 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day83.
