    chiding President Obama for not being willing "to get into the weeds" and exert his will on the Senate to get this legislation passed.

    As usual, she either doesn't grasp how he operates, or she knows and chooses to ignore it so that her audience can lap up her usual nonsense.

    Obama is one of those people who doesn't just want to win. He wants his opponents to lose, too.

    So many times he's been able to portray the GOP as out of the mainstream. This time, a few members of his own party are caught in the soup, too.

    If you're a sports fan, you've seen this kind of attitude on display with the likes of, say, Michael Jordan or Mark Messier.

    Obama's been doing this for years. That some people -- especially well-paid folks such as Ms. Dowd -- still don't see it amazes me.

    How about I believe in the unlucky ones?
