RCP's Rebecca Berg: "Ill Will" Towards Obama Among House Dems Over Trade Agenda


RCP writer Rebecca Berg explains why President Obama was not able to rally enough Democrats to support his international trade agenda. Liberals voted against trade adjustment assistance (TAA) Friday afternoon, can Obama get them to change their minds?

REBECCA BERG, REALCLEARPOLITICS: It really shows how little good will there is towards the president. Over the past six years, he has not made many overtures towards Democrats on the Hill.

No wining and dining them, no golf outings. So the president showing up at the Congressional Baseball game and at their conference on Friday was viewed by a lot of Democrats as too little too late, so there was actually ill will towards him.
