How Obama Can Define Moderation EJ Dionne/Washington Post – Here is Obama’s big opportunity. The reasons behind Bill Clinton’s comeback after the 1994 elections have been widely misread. Clinton didn’t kowtow to the new GOP Congress. He battled their cuts in “Medicare, Medicaid, education and the environment” and beat them. Republican overreach helped Clinton redefine the political center in a way that put the GOP’s congressional leaders outside its ambit. Newt Gingrich and his followers then scrambled back Clinton’s way, and that’s when the dealmaking began.
