Political Science Joke!

Really. Since I am on vacation (or holiday), I am borrowing a quote that lil Steve quotes in his blog:
Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, Barack Obama and an independent and pragmatic president beholden to no party, ideology or interest group are walking down the street. At the same time, all four spot a dollar bill on the ground. Who gets the dollar?
Obama, of course. The other three are figments of your imagination.
I am glad some folks are addressing this.  If we get any third party candidates, they are not going to be in the middle, but on the extreme wing of one of the parties, or both.  Things may not be looking good for Obama right now, but why should he be any different?  This time next year, well, it will be interesting to see who folks blame and whether the GOP can put forth a candidate that is not a joke him/herself.
