Barack Obama, Back on the Road

Hosted by

Signed into law today, the $789 stimulus package is the biggest thing of its kind since the Great Depression. Passed in three weeks with help from just three Republicans, President Obama is gambling that it will work. The GOP's gambling that it won't and that Obama will take the blame. Outside the Beltway, Obama wins two-to-one in the polls. This week in Denver and Phoenix, he'll talk jobs and once again dramatize his grass roots appeal. Is bipartisanship an illusion?  Will Obama transform governance into a permanent campaign?
