Liberals Fear Betrayal Over Grand Bargain

Politico: "Labor unions and liberal interest groups are going all-out for President Barack Obama's reelection -- but they're just as ready to turn that firepower back on him if he betrays them with a grand bargain."

"These groups fear a victorious Obama would ink a deal with Republicans during the fiscal cliff negotiations that slashes entitlement benefits. And that could hurt the very coalition of voters -- minorities, women and low- and middle-income families -- that would claim credit for his second term. Even as they turn out the vote in public to keep Obama in office, in private they're plotting a strategy aimed at pressuring him to protect those who reelected him."
