MSNBC's Wagner: Obama Running for President Because of 'Higher Calling', Romney Because It's 'Next Thing to Do'


<p>President Obama is running for reelection because he feels the
"higher calling" of the office, even though it's obvious he doesn't
really love the political game, MSNBC's Alex Wagner told Conan O'Brien
on his October 17 TBS program. By contrast, Gov. Mitt Romney is running
simply because "it seems like the next thing he should be doing with his
life."</p><p>Wagner made these comments after O'Brien observed that
while Bill Clinton quite obviously loves hitting the campaign trail and
stumping as a surrogate for Obama, it seems that the president himself
would rather be doing something else than campaigning.</p>
