WASHINGTON (AP) - It's nearly impossible to avoid the live video of the coal-gray oil gushing from BP's well a mile below the Gulf of Mexico's surface and a poll shows most Americans have seen it.
Now, some are wondering if the Gulf oil leak cam could engulf President Barack Obama?
The video is a daily reminder that two months after the oil rig explosion BP still hasn't plugged its well. A new AP-GfK Poll shows that so far people are more upset with BP than with the president.
But, some political observers say, if the crude continues to flow, those images could become a symbol of Obama's inability to fix not only the spill but also the economy.
