    Every time Obama and the Dems offer bipartisanship to the Repubs and get rebuffed, the Repubs drive more swing voters into the Dem camp. Obama is Pres now courtesy of independent voters. If we can hold onto independents for several election cycles, they won't be independents any more -- they'll be Democrats.

    The Repubs are playing checkers. Obama is playing chess.

    "The true strength of our nation comes not from the might of our arms or the scale of our wealth, but from the enduring power of our ideals." - Barack Obama
