    The ObamaCare Quagmire

    A sensible president would of course step in and provide some adult supervision to a wayward party hell-bent on jumping off this cliff. But the problem is that President Obama believes in his own messianism too deeply for that. His goal is not to remake his party as it could be but "remake this world as it should be." In his book Dreams From My Father Obama gives the distinct impression that his gifts are too great for the smallness of our political stage. He regrets not having been born during the civil rights era when the grandness of the cause would have measured up to the grandness of his ambition. He is in search of something big that will allow him to make his mark on the world as Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King did. Hence, the defeat of ObamaCare would not just be par for the course in the rough-and-tumble world of politics for him. It would be sign of his ordinariness, his mortality, and that, to him, is unendurable.

    If you take away the little snide commentary, this sounds very positive to me...ambitious, good... wants to leave a mark, great... has high expectations of himself, excellent... aspires to greatness, very good... what is the problem? Do you want a mediocre man who aspires to nothing? Do you want a president who won't be upset at failure? I don't get it...

    I'd like a president who is there FOR THE PEOPLE not for himself.

    What is he ambitious to do? Affect positive change on the nation...

    Why do politicians run for office? It's not for the pay... it's because they believe in something and want to fight for it... that is true of both sides of the aisle...
