    Is 2 yrs too long to campaign for the 4 yr term of the presidency?

    That means that half way through a first term, we have the president campaigning for reelection, and the Congress campaigning for the political party to win control. The 2007-2008 presidential campaign had senators and other elected officials focusing on being elected or reelected, and no one saw the economy crashing before the election.

    There must be more than a sheer coincidence between the campaigning and the failure of the government to even notice, that the economy was going into failure, much less having a plan to keep it afloat before it could collapse. The fact is that there was no su

    It's not bad if the sitting president has no one opposing them from their own party during primary season. They can pretty much go about acting presidential and getting things done during the primaries while their potential opponents duke it out among themselves.
    I do think the (primary season) is way too long!
    The Republican convention takes place this year July 18th-21st.
    The Democrats convention takes place July 25th -28th.
    So basically the time spent to win the general election is August through November 8th this year. (Just a little over 3 months).
    The time spent to win one's party's nomination is almost 1 1/2 years!
    Especially if you add in time for setting up exploratory committees.
    I suppose the additional time during the primaries helps to level the playing field for lesser known politicians to build a following and raise money. Infighting within a party during primaries drags things out.

      President Obama is out there now campaigning and fund raising, so even when not campaigning for reelection they are not getting things done.
      2008 election?

    Personally I think Hillary has campaigning for POTUS since she had that last look around the White House to see if they forgot to remove any W's from the keyboards.
