Political panel: Will President Obama's Libya success help him in the 2012 election?

Gadhafi's probable defeat is good news for President Obama, who can now be credited with another foreign policy success in which no American lives were lost and large amounts of money weren't spent.

However, U.S. voters appear to have given little thought to the war in Libya and it is unclear as to whether or not the president's success will make Americans more or less likely to vote for him in 2012.

Approaching election season, the majority of Americans are focused on jobs, with sixty percent of the population citing the economy as their number one concern in an August 5-7 CNN/ORC international poll.

Today on American Morning, Charles Blow, op-ed columnist, joins Will Cain and Ruben Navarrette, CNN contributors, to discuss the president's foreign policy record and jobs plan and to weigh in on the GOP presidential candidates vying for a spot on the 2012 ticket.
