    Exactly. And if he did get re-elected, I fail to see how that would garner respect from his critics in any case.

    Because like I said a majority of their countrymen have deemed him good enough to have another 4 years being their president

But he will most likely be a two-term President (barring something huge, like a terrorist attack or the SCOTUS striking down health care reform) and I'm at least interested to see where he goes from here, and to what lengths the GOP will go to be obstructionist.

    I'm expecting the economy to pick up somewhat in the next year or two and with the Iraq war done, Obama will be in a more beneficial position to really do some Obama stuff.
    I couldnt agree more. I think Obama's got the upper hand, which is a good thing considering he can start doing the things he planned on doing in his first term.
    And about the poll, I personally will be more, I suppose "proud" or "enlightened". But him winning a second term wont neccesarily change my opinion about his policies.

    Much in the same way that the Left in America came to love and accept G.W. Bush when he won re-election, right? They all respected him for being our president because he got another 4 years. Right.

    They were wrong as well, what I have got from this thread is that American politics is more polarized than I thought it was.

    haha...Welcome to America, Higs.

    And FWIW, if Obama wins the general election it doesn't necessarily mean that a majority of Americans would have voted for him. In fact, it's more likely that that's not the case, since turnout for Presidential elections is generally around 50% of the eligible electorate, if I'm not mistaken.
