37. 2012 reminds me of 1968 only we Democratic Party members do not even have a choice.
LBJ quit after the primaries started. I was for McCarthy then switched to RFK when RFK entered the primaries late.

If Obama were to decline ASAP, I would think the best Democratic candidates could be found among current or past Democratic Governors.

I like Jerry Brown for one. Brown at least has said quit abusing OWS. He is my Governor now and was in the past. Another pol I like (and lived in OR during a prior term) is Kitzhaber.

My instincts tell me that we have yet to see who will be the Repuke candidate and we may see Jeb Bush or Petreaus or Barbour or?

Obama has royally fucked up Afghanistan, healthcare, education, the environment, the economy, and rule of law and could conceivably lose to even a Repuke nutcase and drag Congress down too.

Obama has proven to be a divisive and ineffective POTUS. I cried in happiness November 2008.

I am and want a New Deal / Great Society / Peace Democratic candidate in 2012.
