Yeah, it's pretty slippery of him. We all know that politicians trim their sails as their ambitions grow... Obama is no different in this regard, as far as this topic goes. Tsk tsk. Many of us know what he might conceivably mean by 'bipartisanship'; it means kowtowing to an agenda that accomodates Republican concerns which seems wholly unnecessary given their electoral weakness. Throw one of your key constituencies under the bus and your words may come back to haunt you, Mr President-Elect.
