2. Look for more of this. I predict Obama will use his "lame duck" status to take out ISIS

or at least seriously cripple it before he leaves office.

Reasons:

1) He will not want a Trump to come along after him and "fix" a threat that Obama couldn't.

2) If he can clean this up before Hillary Clinton takes office, it will enhance her chances in the election and save her the political problem of getting her own hands dirty at the start of her Presidency.

3) He is riding high in the polls and will continue to do so as Americans look askance at their future alternatives for President. He will be able to take more aggressive action while he has increased political capitol and voters are focused on the elections.

4) It is a legacy thing and it is a responsibility thing. He will not want this unresolved situation to mar his Presidency, both because it will be a historical stain that our first Black President left this problem behind, and because he is a conscientious patriot that sincerely wants to deal with this and not leave it to future Presidents. Especially a possible Trump that may even nuke the whole f-ing Mid East.
