http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs...s-obamas-maybe-not-good-governing_773339.html As someone pointed out in a thread a few weeks back, this smacks of the "organizer vs. governor." Obama consistently appears to be confused by what's going on; and I can understand. Someone who has spent their career organizing and campaigning is used to dealing with people who have a common goal and beliefs; politics and governing, however, are dictated by multiple parties with different beliefs and goals. I'm reminded of a quote from "Ender's Game", although I can't find it word-for-word: When Bean tells Ender he wants to be a platoon commander, Ender asks him why; Bean replies, "Because I know what to do with them." To which Ender responds: "But will they follow you?"
