"With Republican Newt Gingrich and Democrat Dennis Kucinich both talking impeachment, President Obama is in a special place. Call it caught between two extremes. While not exactly comfortable, the middle ground is where he needs to be to win reelection. That’s the Obama team’s hope and they have reason to believe in it. A new Pew Research Center poll shows Obama beating a generic Republican, 47 to 37 percent. Of course, Obama will be running against an actual Republican, in an election that is more than 18 months away. A lot can and will happen between now and then. If what happens in Libya is perceived as bad, that won’t be good for Obama." (03/27/11)
