When President Obama visited Canada’s House of Commons recently, Members of Parliament embarrassed themselves by chanting “four more years.”
It was an unseemly breach of parliamentary decorum as well as a display of either indifference or ignorance: The Constitution forbids Obama from serving a third term.
Perhaps foreigners can be forgiven for not understanding this vital fact (or not wanting to). However, American citizens, even Democrats, should know better. Apparently they don’t.
According to The Hill:
A strong majority of Democrats would cancel the 2016 presidential election between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump if it meant President Obama could serve another term, a new poll found.
Data provided to The Hill by the conservative polling outlet WPA Research found that 67 percent of Democrats would take a third term for Obama over a potential Clinton administration.
Only 28 percent said they’re ready to move on from the Obama White House, while 6 percent are undecided.
At first, this seems like bad news for Republicans. Yet according to the same report:
[A] Gallup survey from April found Clinton’s net approval rating among Democrats hitting a new low. She had a 63-point net positive approval rating last November. That plummeted to only 36 points in April.
Clinton may now attempt to portray herself as the second coming of Obama, but that would be a tall task. Hillary lacks the cool charisma that those surveyed are clearly thinking of when they think of the current President. She’s just not in the same league in terms of style, and style is all Obama fanatics care about.
