How Obama Gets Things Done

What’s good for House leaders is bad for members [The Examiner]

Guest Blog The Washington Examiner www.washingtonexaminer.com By: MICHAEL BARONE Senior Political Analyst March 17, 2010 The Democratic leadership’s struggle to pass the Senate health care bill in the House looks like a great case study for political scientists. They have many examples of the leaders of a party majority trying to push controversial legislation through a balky chamber. But seldom have the political incentives of the party leadership and the party’s members been so differently aligned. There is always some misalignment.
