When he was a member of the Illinois state senate during 1997-2004, Barack Obama played poker frequently with fellow legislators. I think that we and the GOP are about to find out just how good a poker player he is. During the President’s first term, he made pre-emptive concessions to the obstructionist GOP. I think and hope that things will be different in his second term.
