Yes, President Barack Obama will be running for re-election in 2012. To be completely accurate, he told the National Journal that he hasn't made a formal decision but "feel[s] like [he's] got a lot of work left to do." And we all know what that means.

"Completely unfounded," he said (three times, for emphasis). Of course, if he did have plans to do something like this come 2012, it wouldn't really behoove him to mention it in 2010. So let's just wait and see what happens, shall we?
