Discord and Disarray Won't Help Obama Legacy

Obama is not worried about his legacy. He knows what he is doing and will be able to say " I fundamentally transformed America " That my friend will be his legacy and he will wear it proudly.

Barack Obama is said to believe that he can win the political fight over the sequester. That's certainly the conventional wisdom.

And there is some evidence to support it. When you ask voters who will be to blame if the sequester occurs, Obama or "congressional Republicans," they're much more likely to say they'll blame the latter.

Obama also comes out on top when you ask whether they will blame "Obama and congressional Democrats" or "congressional Republicans."

There's reason to wonder, however, whether reaction after something happens will be the same as what people predict before it does.

Voters are not always...
