I think Obama could be opening a few cans of worms that his successor will have to deal with after he’s gone.
I could have picked just about anyone for this future president. But I think the current crop being discussed among the GOP will have all lost viability after 2012. I could have gone with Chris Christie, as he’s pretty popular right now but it’s too soon for him to run for president, but as governor in a liberal state I think he’ll burn too many bridges by the next campaign. I felt Rubio was a good choice because he’ll be more experienced for the next campaign, he’ll probably be damage free because you can stay out of trouble and real issues as a senator.
I didn’t pick a Democrat because I really don’t see a Democrat, yet, that can carry the party’s mantel after Obama.
Damn, it’s too early to speculate on 2012 less enough 2016.
Here’s the rough. I drew the guy at the desk before I settled in on Rubio, hence why he doesn’t look anything like Rubio. He looks like the anti-Rubio.
