If you imagine a policy spectrum that that goes from 1-10 in which 1 is the most liberal policy, 10 is the most conservative policy, and 5 is that middle zone that used to hold both moderate Democrats and Republicans, the basic shape of American politics today is that the Obama administration can and will get Democrats to agree to anything ranging from 1 to 7.5 and Republicans will reject anything thatís not an 8, 9, or 10. The result, as Iíve written before, is that President Obamaís record makes him look like a moderate Republicans from the late-90s.
