"The Smart Liberal Spin On Post-Partisanship"

Nate Silver:

Back in 2008, the smart liberal spin on "post-partisanship" -- one which I frankly bought into -- is that it was in part an effort to put a popular, centrist sheen on a relatively liberal agenda. Instead, as Leonhardt points out, what Obama has wound up with is an unpopular, liberal sheen on a relatively centrist agenda.

Oh yes. The Theory of Change. One positive result from Massachusetts is the the realization that the Village Dems were wrong about the Post Partisan Unity Schtick. You can't fix a problem until you admit you have it.

Speaking for me only
