Obama's Leadership Challenge

Joan Walsh: "If the president can't single-handedly force reason on Republicans, what can he do to advance his agenda? I'm reminded of his political meltdown after the debt-ceiling deal in August, 2011. He got out of his funk by enthusiastically flacking a jobs bill that had no chance of passing Congress, but that let him connect with voters and remind them that Democrats had plans to make things better, even if they couldn't implement them because of Republican obstruction."

"If he can't get anything done, he should still be telling the story of what he wants to do, what Democrats are eventually going to do, when the country gives them control of the steering wheel."

E.J. Dionne: "The nation's political conversation has grown stale, and many Americans have lost the sense of what he is doing to improve their lives."
