Go Middle?

I try to avoid watching ABC News, but somehow my TV was stuck on that channel for Bush. Afterwards, Stephanopoulous and Halperin came on and both explained how Bush now has a mandate to go toward the middle. Halperin even labeled Bush a lame duck. Puh-leeze! Today, of all days, our president is anything but lame. And he won’t be waddling over to the officially-approved political positions of ABC News anytime soon.
