See Obama comes from the Chicago political machine and knows you keep your friends close and enemies closer. So by making these potential contenders a part of his office extension or representatives of his administration they can't then come and run against him. See the Utah Gov will be in China when he should be campaigning for office. So then how do you knock the pres out of his seat?
Well, we need to pray that a true pro-life, pro-traditional marriage contender comes along. God knows who and where that person is.
