Good news: Obama to be president for the next "eight to 10 years"

A harmless slip but nonetheless post-worthy because (a) our commenters seem to be enjoying it, (b) if ABC thinks it’s worth mentioning, I guess it’s news, (c) there’s a school of thought in this election, more so than in any other that I can remember, that every word from a candidate’s mouth is capital-S Significant, so here’s something for tomorrow’s lesson, and (d) it gives me an excuse to link Karl’s post, which ties in to the question being put to the Messiah here. Why won’t he take questions from foreign journalists, anyway?
