The Big O - Smart, Reasoned and Reasonable Enough For All?


Including reasonable Republicans?

I think so.

But you don't have to take my word for it, because it's all there in the interview below in which Obama pushes back to the middle while responding to Rachel Maddow's questions from the left side of the ledger.

And, amazingly, he, Obama I mean, only drops one 'g' in eight full minutes (interview starts @ 3:20').

Sounds like a centrist to me.


Second half of interview is here in which Obama uses the term 'necessary but not sufficient' which is also favoured by 'gasp!' fruit fly geneticists after a comprehensive analysis of both gain and loss of function mutations of a particular gene and/or wine and chloroform-soaked visit to the infamous Mendel lab in Melbourne Mississippi. Or some such thing.
