President Obama's first term was hardly perfect, argues The Washington Post, but he is still by far the superior choice.
During a brief stop at an Obama for America office in Chicago, President Obama praised GOP challenger Mitt Romney for running "a spirited campaign." Obama noted that Romney's supporters are likely "working just as hard" as his own backers today, adding that the Democratic team still feels "confident we've got the votes to win." Indeed, Obama said, "I'm looking forward to the results... No matter what happens, I just want to say how much I appreciate everybody who has supported me."
