i've been hearing alot of yammering that obama will be a one-term president; however, i am now (finally) hearing a great deal more talk about obstructionism in the congress. do you believe that obama's reputation will eventually be ruined or buoyed by the partisanship in the the senate? i personally feel that the minority party is shooting itself in the foot... when nothing gets done, despite attempts at partisanship on obama's part (not necessarily the house/senate democrats though), it seems to me that the republicans will have opened themselves up to massive criticism. will their party-line blockade of everything (including bills they themselves write/sponsor) come back to haunt them at the mid-term elections?
