Well, I guess Senator Tester and his “centrist” coalition finally may have gotten on to something:

“In other words, there is a bipartisan majority — of opposition to the president. Certainly a President Romney or a President Bachmann could put together a coalition of Republicans and moderate Democrats to get quite a lot done. And that is ultimately the problem with Obama’s strategy. You can only run against “obstructionists” if your own agenda is widely popular and credible. Obama doesn’t have that. His own party knows it. The voters know it. And the GOP presidential candidates know it.”

So, a few senators are more than willing to sacrifice having a democrat re-elected to the white house in ’12 so they can hold on to their seats. Then again, as Rubin says, maybe those senators are more interested in bipartisanship that aligns themselves with republican legislators and with a republican president, than with democracts and a democrat president.

Jes sayin’…
