Although people will tell you that this is not possible, when the nation is in trouble as when WWII was taking place, FDR served into his 4th term before he died in office.
"It's always a possibility", stated one Washington Insider. "If things go down the drain finally or major wars are going on everywhere in the world, Mr. Obama may be the only choice."
Of course, he will definitely need to be a different President than now. But what if Mr. Obama, in a world going nuts, came before the American people and admitted that his policies had failed in the past but they had to be tried in order to prove that fact, one way or another.
What if he suddenly, humbly apologized as he has recently done about people losing their health care or insurance and bring everything out in the open?
What if he asked a conservative Republican to be his running mate and the two campaign together and agree to have both parties work together for the first time in many years.
A huge financial crisis, a limited nuclear exchange somewhere, lots of different things could produce "Many races, One America" slogans that would pull the country together and get something positive done.
"Politics make strange bedfellows" is an old saying and it's been proven true. The statement to agree to disagree on the not so important things and togetherness on the ones that count.
