"The health-care drive is the most important reason Obama has sunk to 46 percent. But this reflects something larger. In the end, what matters is not the persona but the agenda. In a country where politics is fought between the 40-yard lines, Obama has insisted on pushing hard for the 30."
Interestingly enough, my daughter and I had a conversation this morning using this same football field analogy, although we concluded that The One is pushing for the 20 yard line, not the 30 as suggested by CK.
