Based on Obama's first term, he was much more centrist than expected... and I believe it was because that's where you have to be to get elected.

He now doesn't have to worry about being re-elected... and nobody's gonna vote for Biden in 4 years, so he can do whatever he wants.

I do not believe Obama to be the muslim, socialist, leftist that apparently a large percentage of people believe him to be, but I do believe that he will move noticeably left over the course of this term.

We shall see.

I think he wants to move to the left. But with Republican's controlling the house for the foreseeable future, his ability to move to the left is going to be severly restricted.

The fiscal cliff will set the tone for the next four years I think. Pubs are already trying to draw lines in the sand on tax increases so if Obama caves on that ; he'll do the same the rest of the term.

If by some miracle they all reach a reasonable compromise it should be a good four years.

I think with the election finalized you will see the economy pick up. There are a lot of companies with capital who are holding back during the election. Once we get past the fiscal cliff that money will get put in play and a lot of jobs will get created.
