Anytime I watch American punditry I am always struck by how selling out the left in order to please the centre - which in reality is actually the centre right - is always favoured by the pundits.

They seem to love it when Obama bashes his base. When Bush was president I seem to remember the opposite being true. There were things he wanted to do but couldn't because it was vital that he didn't displease his base. Obama, on the other hand, is always being asked to show that he is not partisan by kicking his base in the teeth.
