COSTA MESA, CALIF. (AP) - President Barack Obama says a re-election campaign in 2012 is the last thing he’s thinking about.

At a town hall meeting in California, Obama was asked if he would seek a second term four years from now. Only two months in office, the president said it was too early to think about another campaign.

Obama says he would rather work hard during his current four-year term instead of worrying about being a mediocre president to win a second term. Nevertheless, Obama is expected to seek a second term when the time comes.

The president is on a two-day visit to the West Coast to promote his $787 billion economic stimulus plan.
