Good commentary in the FT. I agree with its three core arguments:
1) Obama has to be true to the convictions of those on the left who drove him to power
2) He has to treat the Republicans like the small minded people they are
3) He has to rid his administration of Clinton re-treads.
People wanted a different sort of president. Not another one too frightened to act or unwilling to act.
He has to deliver that.
