Earth to Obama…

From the NYTimes today, emphasis mine:

The breakdown of last year’s grand bargain talks proved a turning point. “That was a searing experience,” Mr. Plouffe recalled. The lesson: Forget negotiations and use the bully pulpit. Policy is not about applying reason; it’s about applying power.

 Glad somebody is paying attention.
