The Dog Who Caught The Car

From a wonderful comment on LawDog's blog post, STRATFOR Weighs In.
"Obama is like the dog that caught the car. Now what does he do?"
Based on Strategic Forecasting's meticulous Geopolitical Intelligence Report, he ought to have his hands very full for a good long time. Especially if Biden's prediction comes true, and the less-upstanding folks in certain regions decide to find out just how tough he really is.

Kind of makes you wonder why people like Hamas, Libyan President Moammar Qaddafi, and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad are really so glad to see him get elected.

This would seem to play into the speculation he'll leave his gun-banning agenda for his "second term." Since his campaign was long on charisma and short on substance, this whole "second term" thing sounds a lot like even more hubris.

And lots of Traditions see hubris as one of the surest ways to earn a big smackdown from the Powers That Be.
