Just Wondering

I've been thinking about 2012. If things continue to go the way they are, when will Democrats turn on Obama? I mean in a big way. My main fear is Hillary. What if she resigned dramatically in opposition to Obama's policies? Wouldn't Democrats who fell for Obama turn to her instead of Republicans? Or will the Democrat brand be so damaged they won't? If they do, will Republicans go Democrat lite to compete with her?

Has a sitting President ever been defeated in the primaries? If so, did their party go on to win?

I'm not trying to throw cold water. I hope I didn't scare anyone.

In my opinion, the Democrats are already positioning themselves for a run at Obama in the primaries in 2012. Bayh probably did not run for reelection because of this. He ruled out a third party bid, but said nothing about the primaries. I think that Obama is going to have more than one challenger in the primaries, although Hillary will be one of these. If the conservatives have a landslide in 2010 and do a decent job, then I do not think either Obama or Hillary would have much of a chance. The Democrat party may be dragged to the right.

I do not think a sitting President has ever been beat in the primaries, but I think Johnson decided not to run because he as convinced he would be.

Obama won't run for a second term as he will resign during his first term. I think he will cite health reasons. Hillary has to have some MAJOR diplomatic victory before she resigns. So far bump-kiss. So she will stay on.
