Friday’s p-Op quiz: ‘Clint Eastwood’ edition

There’s been a lot of rooting this week. The American people are rooting a little bit more for President Obama. His approval rating is 50 percent in The Post poll and 49 percent in the Gallup poll. In both, those are the highest for Obama in quite a while. The Ninth Circuit rooted for same-sex marriage in a narrow ruling declaring a California ban on such unions unconstitutional. Meanwhile, Karl Rove took rooting against America to new heights by condemning a car commercial that tapped into our innermost belief in ourselves as a nation. Conservatives again rooted against Mitt Romney, this time in three states. But they did root for Rick Santorum. And with CPAC in town, they’re all rooting against President Obama.

When it comes to the p-Op quiz, I’m always rooting for you. So, get crackin’.
