Obama and other members of the punditocracy saying that the path to the presidency can only be achieved by pandering to these (mostly southern) conservatives I always have to roll my eyes (I also roll my eyes at so called independent pundits always rushing to the same wrong conclusion, as usual). Because for a considerable...
