Every great athlete has a pace. A pace is a certain speed at which they can run for very long periods of time without damaging their bodies and wearing themselves out before the race is over.

President Obama showed a marathoner's pace when he took on the Democratic establishment and defeated Hillary Clinton in the long primary season campaign and still had enough left to finish off a tired John McCain in the general election. He was disciplined and executed the long-distance runner's strategy perfectly.

However, the new president has now become a sprinter, racing out of the blocks full speed ahead! A sprinter doesn't have to pace himself. He just uses every ounce of energy, power and speed to get himself to the finish line in the fastest time.

Sound Off: Your comments 3/11/09

Editor's Note: After Wednesday night’s AC360°, many of you commented on the Alabama shootings, ear marks and Forbes new 500 list. On the Alabama shootings a lot of you asked that the issue of access to guns be discussed. The segment about ear marks received much praise for being “nonpartisan” in the reporting. Finally, with so many out of work and losing their 401(k) accounts, etc., a few viewers commented that they could care less that the billionaires are still doing OK. What do you think?

I am disappointed that there was no mention of the weapons used by the shooter in the Alabama shootings. This is a serious national problem that we are not talking about openly. Since the Assault Weapons Ban was allowed to expire, these types of dangerous weapons are increasing in use in shootings like this. We need to talk about this. I know that Dennis Henigan from the Brady Campaign was scheduled and then bumped for tonight's show. Please have him on to talk about this.
