[A CNN poll, released on Dec. 23, 2010, offers some encouraging news--and perhaps a word of caution-- for President Obama.]

Two nights before Christmas, surveying the land,

A poll put good news in the President's hand.

Fifty six of a hundred folks made this confession:

"Obama did well in this year's lame-duck session."

The Republicans' rating was just forty-two.

Oh, the damage that Senate obstruction can do!

Even Congress' Democrats, battered by voters,

Got forty-six, trumping GOP gloaters.

But it didn't stop there, for on further inspection,

The surveyed said they like Obama's direction.

Fifty-five say, "He's moving our country correctly,"

With the GOP going the wrong way directly.
