Op-Ed Pieces That Make My Day

It's a September 18, 2011 Chicago Tribune column calling for Obama to not run for re-election, so that Hilary Clinton can be the nominee.  The argument is essentially that it is for the good of the Democratic Party, so that the Republicans won't have such an easy win next year.

It's hard to argue with the logic; Hilary Clinton used to be the most hated Democratic politician in America, but Obama has managed to make her look moderate, competent, and intelligent by comparison.  The good news is that Obama's ego will never allow it, and the racial politics of the Democratic Party (especially the "overwhelmingly rich and white but profoundly guilty about it" progressive wing) would turn the resulting primary campaign into a circular firing squad.
