John Heilemann: Obama’s Team Thinks He Has More Talent In One Finger Than All GOP Candidates

(By Matt Schneider, Mediaite) - In addition to exploring potential Republican presidential campaign strategies, Chris Matthews also asked what President Obama’s perspective on the 2012 election might be? The panel of guests agreed that Obama and his campaign team were feeling confident, especially given the potential opposition.

John Heilemann from 'New York Magazine', suggested about people within the Obama administration:

“They look at the Republican field and they say, ‘you’ve got to be kidding. Our guy has so much, he has more talent in his little finger than any of these Republicans, and they are going to have to put someone on the field eventually, and our guy will run them straight over.’ That’s what they think.”
