I probably won't vote for him, again. He essentially has the election locked up, unless he sires an illegitimate child, or kills someone, between now and then, it's his to lose. Also, I live in Massachusetts, so he'll get our electoral votes, anyhow.

All over the place, from the popular culture to the propaganda system, there is constant pressure to make people feel that they are helpless, that the only role they can have is to ratify decisions and to consume. -Noam Chomsky
I'm actually not too displeased with his presidency. I was worried with all his "ideals" he spouted about changing things, but it seems he is more pragmatic than idealistic which is fine with me. He's going to do certain things that you must do as a Democrat (i.e. promote liberal justices instead of conservative ones) but he doesn't seem bent on upsetting the apple cart for his ideals. His push for this style of healthcare reform is a big negative for me, but overall he's not as bad as I thought he would be.
It really depends on if he screws the pooch coupled with who runs against him. I'm more focused on spending my vote to keep republicans and blue dog dems in Congress to keep a check on his presidency (so long as they aren't complete morons.)

I also know that lots of wealthy whites-the country club pampered wife set for example-voted for Obama out of a sense of white guilt including my sister in law. when I asked her why she just gushed about "black president". I asked her what policies of his she liked and it was akin to asking Sarah Palin who the prime minister of Albania is
I'm not thrilled about it but in light of the other stellar choices, yeah, I'll vote for him.
