Obama's foreign successes may help little in 2012

By declaring the Iraq war over, President Barack Obama scored what his allies see as a fourth big foreign policy success in six months, starting with Osama bin Laden's killing. But in his re-election bid, these events might play a discouragingly small role even if they burnish his eventual place in history. Voters tend to focus heavily on domestic issues, especially in times of high unemployment. That will limit Obama's campaign options.

Senh: I'm wondering if he's already thrown everything he could at unemployment. Maybe there's only so much you can do, especially since we're coming from the second worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.


Obama's bounce is gone, Republicans unhappy with candidates, according to new poll

A new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll is the latest to show that the boost President Obama received following the death of Osama bin Laden was short-lived, and that both Democrats and Republicans have reason to be anxious about the 2012 campaign.
