NYT reporter already mapping out Obama's failure

Reports Politico:

If his stimulus plan "doesn't work out, he may very well be a one-term president," said [the Times'] Jeff Zeleny, who covered Obama's campaign. "It's hard to imagine that he could be reelected if the economy's in the exact same position four years from now."

Funny, we don't recall any Times reporters suggesting Bush would be a one-term president days before his inauguration. But of course we do remember lots of reporters and pundits announcing that Bill Clinton had failed in his first month in office.

Note the double standard?
