The topic of Libya came up in one of my social network discuussion groups. The question was whether issue of Libya will bring out a challenger to President Obama during the primaries.
No, Libya will not be enough to incentivize a primary challenge against Mr. Obama. Where is it going to come from? The far left?
Even if a primary challenge were to come from the far left, it would only strengthen Mr. Obama in the eyes of moderates, especially if he were to successfully beat back that challenge.
In turn, Republicans would definitely be forced to find a more moderate or center-right candidate because allowing Mr. Obama to firmly occupy the middle would lessen their chances at the White House.
