Obama is already expecting defeat in the next election, according to his most recent interview w/ Diane Sawyer.. American's are not happy w/ his policies excluding Israel. I'm afraid this job is above his capabilities, he isn't qualified to be the President and goes counter to the people wishes, including Israel, which angers American's who overwhelmingly support Israel, our most valued ally. His gamble will be limited and shortened by his own failures which are mainly, ignoring the majority of people who voted for him.
