Assume that the Republicans win big next week. Then, the question is how to beat Obama. It is hard to beat a sitting President, but it can be done, especially if the economy is going badly.
Here is the scenario. After the big defeat in 2010, Obama does not attempt to pivot or does not do a good job of it. This causes Hillary Clinton to conclude that he is vulnerable. So she resigns and primaries Obama.
A primary challenger is a key ingredient to beating a sitting President -- ask Jimmy Carter and George Bush I. One might say, Hillary will never do it. It will burn her bridges with the left. Perhaps, but the primary challenger of Jimmy Carter was Ted Kennedy!
I am not saying it is going to happen; I am just hoping!
