I think he is guilty of misreading the partisan rancor. I believed, like he believed, that there was a way to work with both sides, and I think there was a concerted effort by the Republicans to make his first two years very difficult. I'd like to think that both parties have America's best interests at heart, and I think the Republicans felt that by making life difficult and by creating a situation where nothing appeared to be going well, that they could recapture the House and the Senate and then do what they thought was best for America. My fear is that if they do recapture the Houses, that the Democrats will then do the same thing, which is make life difficult for the Republicans. It's almost like a game of political chicken, and eventually somebody is going to have to give in and do what's right for the country.
