OBAMA ‘s Novelty effect

Six months over, since  President Obama took over as the head of the state, is his tenure going to have the same effect that his predecessors Carter of Clinton?

The real danger may be that Obama and the Democrats, particularly in the Senate, will get weak-kneed in the face of the Republican-business coalition and settle—either for health care legislation that increases subsidies, but doesn’t rein in the insurance companies (which is what Clinton and the Democrats did after 1994), or for financial regulation that ostensibly imposes new rules, but doesn’t strengthen the public’s ability to enforce them.

Let us hope that Obama and his team will learned from the past. The conditions are always different as one never sees the same water going through the river.

John Judis  from the National Public Radio attempts to analyze the point.
