Obama's Achievement of Change in Washington has so far come to zip
The stimulis package has passed through the House and despite The One's oratory he blew his first chance at genuine consensus politics. Not one Republican voted for it. 11 Democrats voted against it. That is big news. Not one squidgy Republican crossed the line.
Obama met with Republicans prior to negotiate a consensus and to sell the package. Some salesman - He made no changes following those discussions. The result is that Obama and the DNC will completely own the result.
