Partisan Realities

Reality begins to set in, Obamas' reach is not as far as he once thought.

Ben Smith's Blog: Dept.of partisan realities - Politico.com
Part of Barack Obama's appeal in the early days of the campaign -- scoffed at by the Clintons -- was a promise of moving past the bitter partisanship of the 1990s and the present.

Since then, the partisan realities have set in, however, as Obama acknowledged in an offhand remark to ABC's John Berman tonight:

"I don't think me calling House Republican members would have been that helpful, I tend not to be that persuasive on that side of the aisle," he said.
