Doing a bit of research about a future piece summarizing the Obama presidency and his chances for victory in 2012 led me to a point recently made by the guy pictured on the right (appropriately enough) who, like many, believes the elements of what got our 44th president elected will not factor in getting him re-elected:
"The historical nature and aspect of Obama's presidency has long since settled in, and now he's President of the United States, and now he is and should be held accountable like any other president would be. All these surface characteristics are irrelevant. The color of his skin, all of that means nothing -- and it shouldn't."
