Feeling the Heat

"We wonder if they might end up re-electing the President before the 2012 campaign even begins in earnest."That's from the WSJ Editorial this morning, slamming Republicans on the Hill for pretty much giving up the 2012 presidential election before the year has even started. Washington doesn't get any more heated than this. But as far as Obama goes, could the paper be right? All of this infighting has seemed to move the needle in his favor: two polls out this week show his approval ratings rising to the upper 40s, their highest level since the summer. read more
