From a New York Times article on President Obama's outreach to Democratic members of Congress, particularly flyover land reps, resistant to some of his program:
“Of course, we want to see him succeed,” said Senator Mark Pryor, Democrat of Arkansas, as he entered the luncheon. “My guess is we’re not going to walk in lock step on everything the administration wants. Maybe the Republicans do that, but that’s not a healthy process."
I hope Obama can return the favor on some of our senators' bad ideas, including suggestions for judicial appointees.
