Obama's Presidency is Hardly Over

More

Please, will the liberals stop complaining--and the conservatives crowing--that this is effectively the end of Obama's presidency?  I seem to remember a fellow named Bill Clinton who suffered a crushing defeat on health care and a stunning electoral reversal in 1994, and yet still managed to have a very successful presidency, as these things go.  He won't be FDR II.  But that was never very likely to begin with.
