The futility of Campaign 2012: The horse race is over
There are many such opinions being floated around, most notably by George Will, that Obama has the election in the bag and the Republicans should focus on winning Congress and the next Presidential cycle. This makes me very uneasy. I think Obama is the favorite at this point, but it will be another close election. I don't think Obama winning is a certainty at all, especially if gas prices keep rising and the economy suffers. I would hope the Democratic base does not get complacent and keeps preparing for a sure-to-be brutal campaign ahead.
