  • Yes. OP, do you think Obama might face a serious challenge? I am wondering if Hillary is planning on another run. She seems to be distancing herself from the Obama admin.

  • No, i don't think anyone will challenge Obama i was just reading a funny headline in the grocery line. It was "Obama Betrayed by Gay Lover" then there was s pic of H. Clinton right below that about something else and it got me thinking. DH didn't know but i know you gals would.
