Now the news coverage can stop focusing on the tit-for-tat political rhetoric, but on what President-elect Obama has on his plate. And as we all know, there is a lot. I spoke with Senators Orrin Hatch and Robert Bennett tonight, election night, and they're hopeful about working with the Obama administration. But, both of them are counting on Obama's pledge of consensus-building and bi-partisianship. In fact, Obama has stated he's willing to do that. But Bennett warned that if Obama tries to do too much too fast, it could be bad for Democrats in the long run. But it could be tempting for his supporters to expect that---pressure from both sides at a time when there are tons of issues in urgent need of attention.
