President Obama formally threw his hat back into the ring, announcing that he will run for re-election.
He’s got a lot of weaknesses and vulnerabilities, what with the economy, his new war in Libya, a reputation as indecisive, and a number of unpopular policies. And yet, say Democrats, who can the Republicans put against him who would not be even less popular? He at least, they say, comes across as presidential, unlike most of his Republican rivals. The power of the incumbency is great, and things may get better by the next election.
