Chicago Tribune Writer Tells Obama Not to Run

Ad Feedback

With the deepening problems like the U.S. deficit and the falling job market, many political analysts are asking if President Barack Obama is the right person to have in the Oval Office.

Three years ago, the Chicago Tribune endorsed Obama for president. But last weekend, one of the paper's editorial writers called on the president to scrap his re-election campaign.

"The sputtering economy is about to stall out. Unemployment is high. His approval rating is at its lowest level ever. The vultures are starting to circle," writer Stephen Chapman noted.

Chapman also included a quote in his editorial from former White House spokesman Bill Burton who said that unless Obama can rally the Democratic base, which is disillusioned with him, "It's going to be impossible for the president to win."

Chapman suggested that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would be the ideal candidate to take Obama's spot. Other analysts have also slated Clinton as a better contender.
