Given the deeply flawed state of the Republican presidential field, the 2012 campaign is shaping up to be Barack Obama's race to lose.
But with his approval ratings in the cellar and his economic recovery plans DOA, the President still faces an uphill battle to convince disaffected voters and alienated Democrats to get back on board his campaign.
Clearly, Obama's current strategy isn't working. Both the West Wing and the campaign are plagued by internal divisions, driven by longtime staffers who have spent the last three years alienating the party base and knocking Obama off his message.
There is still an opportunity to change course. With 12 months to go until Election Day, the President has some time to shake up his team and reverse his downward spiral. But since Obama has so far been unwilling to make the tough calls, we've compiled some suggestions of who should get the boot.
