Obama Honeymoon ending
Of course I hope it ends before he gets anything else very significant passed. The cap-n-trade is scheduled for tomorrow in the House, but I'm told it's not a sure thing. The health care mess, despite being handled very differently from Hillarycare, is starting to provoke real opposition. Here's the Register's editorial following his press c0nference Tuesday, noting that the newsies seemd a little more pointed in their questioning and Obama sometimes defensive. Obama himself is still popular but his policies -- not so much. May he face frustration getting his agenda passed, which is likely since he seems determined to "cure" the financial crisis with more hair of the dog.
