    @Roland: Obama is not pragmatic. A pragmatist would have found a way to get some deals done with Congress on debt ceiling and other issues. Obama is much more like Jimmy Carter: A frustrated dreamer who is in over his head.

    Many liberals hoped that Obama would be a new incarnation of FDR or LBJ. They have been sorely disappointed. Obama is much more in the pragmatic centrist tradition of Harry Truman, JFK, and Clinton.
