SAN FRANCISCO, CA --- The overriding goal of every first term president is be a two-term president. or this President, much more is at stake than personal achievement.
As a former Harvard University constitutional law professor, he knows that a second term offers him the opportunity to change the Supreme Court for decades. That would provide him a second major victory. To stem off legal attempts to repeal his health care initiative—the measure which would mark his place in U.S. history. But he has a third priority of winning re-election: To use the fiscal crisis – which will only exacerbate in the next 24 months – to accomplish his pervasive goal, distributive justice.
