I really can't tell you the dejection I felt when I read the quoted words.
“I don’t want to be making decisions based on getting reelected, because I think the challenges that America faces right now are so significant . . . If I feel like I’ve made the very best decisions for the American people and three years from now I look at it and, you know, my poll numbers are in the tank and . . . politically, I’m in a tough spot, I’ll feel all right about myself.’’
Who does that sound like, huh?
