useful to remember next time anyone fulminates that Obama should do this or that.
from the New York Times:
I’ve already heard some rumbles about Obama having to be a centrist-right winger to succeed, and it is laughable advice/analysis. Obama ran the campaign he ran with a liberal platform (universal health care, tax reform, “spread the wealth”, end war in Iraq), and obviously his message resonated with the country.
Well, most of the country anyway.
