Obama Should Listen to Obama

State Senator Barack Obama, on Bill Clinton’s pursuit of bipartisanship, in 1996:

“On the national level, bipartisanship usually means Democrats ignore the needs of the poor and abandon the idea that government can play a role in issues of poverty, race discrimination, sex discrimination or environmental protection,” Mr Obama said.

Yep, this is right. I wonder what the President thinks about this statement now.
