"Obama ... He promised post-partisan leadership." And seems actually to have believed it possible. Which is my view (on little direct evidence, and possibly completely wrong) of why he dithered for a year, when anyone with any sense would have simply stomped the Republicans in the shortest time possible. In the course of which he came close to blowing the whole thing. During the campaign I thought this "post-partisan" thing so ludicrous that I didn't pay any attention to it. Silly me. If I had taken it seriously I would have supported Clinton instead of Obama. One can only hope he's had some sense beaten into him.
