A former President Clinton adviser says U.S. President Barack Obama will give in to pressure from Democrat leaders and bow out of the 2012 presidential race.
Clinton’s former campaign manager Dick Morris stated that the Democrats no longer have confidence in Obama’s leadership skills.
In an interview with conservative radio icon Sean Hannity, Morris said, “I asked a top Democratic strategist the other day and he thought that it was possible that, in January, Harry Reid comes to Obama and says, ‘Look you cost us control of the House last year, you’re going to cost us control of the Senate this year. For the good of the party you have to step aside’” said Morris.
it is “very possible” that President Obama might acquiesce to requests from the Democratic leadership in Congress and bow out of the 2012 race, leaving the door open for him to return sometime in the future.
