In comic books, Clark Kent goes into the phone booth and out comes Superman. In 2009, Barack Obama went into the White House and out came Clark Kent.
After the mid-term disaster, Democrats have to make major adjustments: starting with the President, the leader of the Party. Obama has to decide whether he is willing to spend two years fighting for Democratic principles and engaging in "politicking.' If he is willing to fight, then he needs to begin on November 3rd. If he isn't, then someone else needs to take over the leadership of the Party. There's too much at stake. America can't afford a repeat of 2010 in 2012.
