Sabato on Obama

Larry Sabato had a column on the State of the Union address in the Times of London Friday - focusing on the challenges President Obama faces.
Mr Obama’s mixed messages underline his need to please constituencies that are at odds — the moderates and liberals at war within the Democratic party, a handful of moderate Republicans he needs to achieve legislative success and the large group of independents who have voted against his candidates in New Jersey, Virginia and Massachusetts and who threaten to deliver a drubbing to Democrats in the November midterm elections for Congress and state governorships.
