President Obama, through his response to the Tuscon Tragedy, the management of the Lame Duck Session of Congress and improving economic indicators, is moving to the political center and surging in the polls. The latest NBC News Wall Street Journal Poll shows a 15 point differential in his approval ratings, with most people seeing him as a moderate trying to work with Republicans. The poll also shows Republicans as being too inflexible right now, and with pushing things like the repeal of Health Care Reform and possibly anti-abortion matters, are they cow-towing too much to the base and losing the middle? And just who is running the once lockstep and disciplined Republican legislative and message machine? Could it be that winning just one House of Congress is the worst of all possible worlds for Republicans? What will happen at the State of the Union speech, and how will the President and Republicans handle it?
