    No. I'd say he is left.

    It would probably help Obama if there was.

    That depends on the challenger doesn't it?

    What if Russ Feingold was the challenger?

    No matter who it was, it would help Obama. His chances of losing are pretty much zero and it would help him with his obvious campaign strategy i.e. to run as the center-left moderate that he has governed as.

    How could it possibly help him? Did it help Al Gore? It would be nice if a teabagger ran as a third party. That would split the republicans into Rich and greedy / Poor and stupid.

    I don't think Bradley's weak challenge to him in 2000 hurt Gore at all.

    I'm at work and can't actually watch the youtube link. So I don't know for sure what this threads original intent was. I assumed it was about a democrat running against the incumbent president in the election. If that is the case I stand by my post. How can a fractured party be anything but bad for Obama?
