President Obama's done a lot of talking recently about Winning the Future. Trouble is, he's not. Politically.
At this moment -- 57% of the way through a first term with only 628 days left until the 2012 presidential election -- the Democrat can only tie any conceivable Republican candidate.
The GOP doesn't even need a frontrunner to catch the incumbent of the most powerful political office in the world. No wonder Obama's bringing fresh blood into the White House and shipping out aides to kick-start the billion-dollar campaign back in Chicago.
A new Gallup Poll finds Obama a little worse off in that generic presidential ballot category this year than he was last year at this time.
