Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Not all have that priority, as David Axelrod noted during his interview of Jon Stewart. He cited the significant number of House Members who voted for the Affordable Care Act, notwithstanding knowing that it would likely make them lose their next election, but voted for it anyway. This DOES happen. It is called 'rising to the occasion' - more than I recall Obama ever doing.
