Uh, I hate to upset the apple cart here but the reason Obama is talking "grand compromise" is because now that he has secured his victory, he no longer has to fear his progressive base. He can now seek the agreement on entitlements without any effective backlash from them. He knows he has their votes in the next few days. It is too late for his base to desert him.
