"If Obama is going to be a successful legislative President, he needs to start acting more like LBJ and less like JFK. Rewarding friends and punishing enemies is the first principle of politics. Obama needs to recall that dictum as he moves forward to pass the legislation in the Senate and reassure an anxious Democratic base that change is really coming."


Couldn't agree more
