Obama the Pragmatist

By Ben Cohen

A great quote from Andrew Sullivan on the GOP’s inability to pin Obama down ideologically:

In so far as conservatives keep reaching for ideological purity to gain


their balance in this unsettling time, they will lose against a skilled


pragmatist like Obama. They seek clarity by defining an “ultimate


agenda” because they are so lost in responding to the actual one.
