The case against Obama, by Paul Krugman (in two parts):
1- the mandate muddle
2- big table fantasies

In each case Obama tries to stake out some "non-ideological" or "post-ideological" terrain, which seem thought out less for policy merit and more for how to avoid provoking Republican wrath. The idea seems to be that by framing issues in ways that Republicans are comfortable with they will feel less threatened and will be more open to working with Dems to get stuff done. He's a charming guy, but is he that charming?

This is a good summary of the Dems stump speeches.
