QOTD: "The conventional wisdom is that the election is President Obama's to lose, but after the week he's had, if I were his Chicago campaign office I'd be hitting the panic button.

...The problem is that the president is in big trouble on the fundamentals. No matter which poll you look at, or how much you like the president personally, you'll see that a majority of Americans continue to believe that our nation is on the wrong track—and those numbers are stuck like a freight train facing the wrong way. Similarly, there are large and growing majorities of Americans who disapprove of the president's signature accomplishment, healthcare reform. Across all demographic groups, the number one issue is the economy—yet the number of Americans who approve of the way the president is handling the economy is abysmal. Chicago, we have a problem." --Mary Kate Cary
