Good article about political focus & how focusing on too many issues depletes Obama's political capital.

The Huffington Post - "Drug Prohibition and the President's Political Capital"

In case anyone goes for a drug legalization aff, that sucks a ton of PC as evidenced by the fact that Obama refuses to even discuss the issue currently.

Forbes/Reuters - "WTO allows Brazil sanctions in US cotton row"

Obama is purposely avoiding the issue of subsidies because he realizes it will divert PC from healthcare.
