After the midterms: Democrats fear President Obama could give in ( DARREN SAMUELSOHN and MANU RAJU, 4/28/14, Politico)
Democrats have something else to fear after the November midterms besides just an all Republican-controlled Congress: President Barack Obama.With Obama's political career winding down and poll numbers continuing to languish, his party brethren fret that their own president -- forced to work with GOP majorities -- would give away the store on key policy issues ranging from the budget to energy and trade. It's a concern congressional Democrats have voiced every time Obama and Vice President Joe Biden tried to cut big fiscal deals with Republicans -- and the panic is now more palpable with the growing prospect of a Senate GOP majority.
Hard to imagine him moving much further right.
