Obama's Naivete

I'm afraid that Howard Fineman has an important point here.  Obama promised bipartisanship, building bridges.  He thinks like the community organizer and professor that he once was.  The US needs leadership like that, especially after the Dubya administration's domestic and foreign policies shot the nation in its collective gut..

But American politics has devolved to become stuck in the muck of  demonizing, gotcha', taunting, winner-take-all, take-no-prisoners knife-fighting.  I see most of that coming from the Republican side, egged on by the useful idiots of talk radio and Fox News.  Obama may be too nice a man, too cerebral a politician, to be able to fight back against thugs and demagogues.
