Another Obama "uh, oh" moment. 

Rasmussen reports:
Leading liberals are already thinking the unthinkable: Challenging President Obama for the Democratic nomination in 2012.

According to a report on the left-leaning Huffington Post website, MSNBC host Keith Olbermann and Eugene Robinson, an African-American national columnist for The Washington Post, discussed just such a possibility Thursday night...

Olbermann said the president has "compromised on everything so far and as self-defeating as it may be, the progressive caucus and progressives would abandon him if necessary, if this was to be the policy of this administration into 2012. If it’s necessary to find somebody to run against him, I think they’d do it, no matter how destructive that may seem."
Of course, the fact that Keith Olberman says something doesn't make it so.

But the fact that left-side cable TV hosts and their guests are openly discussing such things -- that's quite a change from just a few months ago.

It seems "reversion to the mean" exists in political popularity just as much as anywhere else.
