'I accept that the comments that Ken Livingstone has made make it more difficult for Londoners of Jewish faith to feel that the Labour Party is a place for them,' says mayoral candidate Sadiq Khan.03:33 02.05.16 | 0 comments
You may have a point that after enduring such malevolence, Obama may feel justified in implementing his agenda by all means at his disposal. However, Obama is an excellent politician. It's no accident that he is President. He has built many relationships (as all politicians do) with many people, especially within the Democratic Party. If his 2nd term agenda evolves to the point where elements of it conflict with the interests of those people, I believe more often than not he would refrain from acting in a way would jeopardize those relationships. Obama is still a relatively young man and still very ambitious. His career will not end with his presidency and he understands that he will need solid relationships to help propel him to the next stage of his career. This mode of behavior is normal for anyone who makes a living working with people.
