Not taking sides Republican or Democrat but in general should a sitting president be allowed to campaign for the party. Once they become president should they remain neutral and leave the campaigning to the candidates. Right now the president is in Connecticut fundraising for Blumenthal the Democratic challenger for the Senate. Bush did the same thing for the Republicans years ago but is it right. Do we want sitting presidents to be out raising money for a candidate or is it not their duty as leader? I know this will never happen but once a president takes office his political views should take a back seat for the good of the country.
