There's this little-known clause in the Constitution states, "Being as the time that a President should leave the Office of Presidency at the time of the end of his term as President, that man should henceforth be marched off the nearest ye olde cliff available."
Very rarely is that clause adhered to. Unfortunately…

A brand new poll from CNN shows some pretty dour numbers for President Obama's 2012 chances for reelection…
With less than a year to go till the Iowa caucus on February 6, 2012, the conventional wisdom is that President Obama is vulnerable, but there is no Republican who can beat him.
In a new CNN poll, 26% of registered voters say they will definitely vote for Obama and 37% say they won't. If you add in those leaning one way or the other, it turns out that 47% will probably or definitely vote for Obama and 51% probably or definitely won't.
51 percent say that "probably or definitely won't"? That's a lot of percent. I'm not 100 percent sure, but I think that's even more than half. Doesn't he need at least half of the vote to win? No? Well, he definitely needs more than the other candidates at least. No to that one, too?
Alright, well, whatever. These polls numbers gathered a year before the election season officially kicks off certainly mean something, don't they? Oh, come on.

Hey, the way I see it, somebody had to be the Jimmy Carter of Presidents, and it might as well have been Jimmy Carter, seeing as how he already had the name. Though, sometimes I do get the feeling that Barack Obama is trying to steal the title from him.
Anyway, here's the original Jimmy Carter of Presidents telling Big Think what he (big) thinks his big(think)gest failure was…
"You ought not to ever let American hostages be held for 444 days in a foreign country without extracting them."
How many fathers have given that exact same advice to their children on their graduation days? If only Jimmy Carter's father had been one of them.
