Best of the Web Today: Not a Dictator - WSJ.com

Best of the Web Today: Not a Dictator - WSJ.com: "What Yellin was really asking was something like this: Couldn't you just invite them down here and persuade them that it's in their best interests to make a deal?

The answer to that question, it seems clear, is also no, but for a different reason: because Obama is not very good at the job of being president. He does not seem able to command the congressional leadership's respect or trust. Nor does he seem capable of striking fear into them. That needn't mean ordering his guards to threaten them physically but rather making them feel there will be unpleasant political consequences if they don't give him a deal."
