Aren't Republicans getting a wee bit ahead of themselves here? Already they're speculating, as Neil Cavuto and right-wing historian Jane Hampton Cook did yesterday, that President Obama -- because he's had a downturn in the polls, and seems intent on passing his legislative agenda regardless of poll numbers (wow, what a concept) -- is actually planning just a one-term presidency and might even step aside for 2012.
Right. That's good for a low mordant chuckle or two, anyway.
Tell you what, folks -- let's check back on that in about three months, OK? Meantime, you all should get a napkin to wipe up the drool. It's unseemly.
