After his 2008 win, he talked a lot about bipartisanship. This time he’s determined to squeeze it out of Republicans. He believes he owes that to the people who voted for him.
That’s not exactly President Obama speaking. This characterization of the president’s feelings comes from “staffers and friends” as their comments are written up in the Politico/Random House e-book End of the Line and as that e-book is described by co-author Glenn Thrush.
Obama’s first term makes me reluctant to get my hopes up, but the words in Thrush’s article are pretty sweet. Let’s hope the President’s true sentiments have survived the many layers those words were filtered through. Let’s hope that this time, Obama will stand up for progressive values.
