During a recent appearance on CNBC, investor Howard Ruff predicted President Obama would not seek re-election in 2012.
Ruff said, "He's achieved highs no president has ever achieved before and plummeting at probably the worst rate of any president I've ever seen in my lifetime, and I've been around a long time." Ruff is nearly 80.
Ruff has certainly seen more Presidents than I have but I don't agree with his prediction. Given Obama's massive ego this scenario is inconceivable to me. If no Democrat challenges him in the primaries why would he even conceive of not running. Obama's mission is to radically transform America and he can't do that if he doesn't seek another term in office.
