Obama Heads Back to the Campaign Trail

Los Angeles Times: "Reelected and re-inaugurated, Obama is going back to one place he knows he can succeed: the campaign trail."

"During a second term, presidents often head off on a tour of the country after their State of the Union assessment, seizing the high mark of their political capital to press their agenda. The clock is ticking with less than two years, maybe only months, before lame-duck status sidelines the chief executive."

"Obama isn't waiting. He's running opinion leaders through the White House at a daily clip to build support for immigration reform and gun control, as well as his economic vision. And, more than any other president, he's using his campaign's grass-roots network to amplify his message in social media and email inboxes."
