Obama Won, Now What?

Ron Fournier: "Faced now with the choice between partisan politics and a risky high ground, the president has an opportunity to leverage this 'victory' for a long-term budget deal that raises taxes and tames entitlements. Obama won. Now can he lead? Does he have the guts to anger liberal backers with a budget deal on Social Security and Medicare? Is he willing to engage sincerely with Republicans? Does he want a legacy beyond winning two elections and enacting a health care law that, judging by its horrendous launch, may never live up to its promise? If the answer to those questions is 'yes,' Obama has hidden his intentions well."
