THEY CAN WIN ELECTIONS OR GOVERN OUTSIDE THE CENTER-RIGHT, NOT BOTH:

Liberals' frustration grows as agenda stalls: Guantanamo closure, gun bans lag as president 'picks his fights' (Charles Babington, 5/26/09, ASSOCIATED PRESS)

Frustrated liberals are asking why a Democrat-controlled Congress and White House can't manage to close the Guantanamo prison or keep new gun rights laws from passing.

After all, President Obama pledged to shut down the detention center for terrorism suspects at the U.S. Naval Base Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. And Democratic control of the government would suggest that any gun legislation leads to tighter controls on weapons, not expanded use.
