The Los Angeles Times
considers how "Obama Hangover" (or Fatigue). It is not possible to get Dems very excited this year, after the loud party last year. It will be a low Dem turnout in state and local elections, and this almost certainly means they will lose Virginia, and possibly even New Jersey
. And Obama can't help here, even though, as CNN
admits, that this is a referendum on him; he is not wildly popular. Yet, he is gamely going back to Virginia on Tuesday to campaign for Deeds
, but note that Romney is there the next day to campaign for McConnell. Perhaps a foreshadow of 2012.
