    ...but Left, nevertheless.

    I think his Jobs Plan is modest because he stubornly holds on to some small hope that there are reasonable Republicans who will cross over and vote for it.  I think he got sucked into the 'Austerity-Deficit-Reduction' narrative because of conservative Dems (who, incidentally either retired or lost their seats in the mid-terms).  But now he is following the light at the end of the tunnel.  He is beginning to realize the power of the office to shape and change the arugument.

    He can only go one way.
