Even though I vented a bit yesterday about instant outrage at Obama based on unnamed sources floated in a WaPo report, it doesn't mean that I think Obama or the Democrats are handling the partisan gridlock in a particularly effective way. Avedon has a great post on the lesson they could all learn from Alan Grayson on that score and gets quote of the day.
Or, to put it another way, if Obama really wants bipartisan support, he should sound like a liberal. When Republicans feel like the voters will take revenge on them for not being able to answer liberal questions, even they will find they need to vote for those whacky liberal programs.
I see reams of unsolicited advice to the President that often strikes me as implusive, over-reactive, impractical or otherwise useless, but if I had an ear in the White House, I'd certainly suggest Mr. Obama take this advice to heart. Thinking the problem is the false notion that voters wanted them to stop fighting inside the Beltway, when in fact they wanted our elected leaders to stand up and fight for liberal policy after all those years of conservative policy brought us to the brink of ruin.
