Don’t get me wrong: Barack Obama’s poll numbers will go up again at some point. But then again: so did GWB’s.

But even rallies back to above 40% won’t help Democrats win in 2014, or pass a second term agenda, or, heck, help a Democrat win in 2016. Do you really think that a President with a 40% approval rating is going to be allowed within fifty miles of the next Democratic Presidential nominee? – Not that it will help, any more than Bush’s distancing himself from McCain helped. It’s just a bad scene all around, folks.
Just a bad scene.
