If Obama is going to succeed, he will need the support of those in Warren's crowd. One man, even the US Pres., can't do much. And Warren represents nearly half, 48%, of voters.

If Obama's gonna get all that change Warren's critics want,  he'll need to get everyone on board.

In Chicago, the judges eat lunch with the bankers and the mafia.  That's really how things get done. Aldermen and brokers are also at the table, along with the rabbis and reverends and priests and mullahs, and a lot of them are GLBT, too.

Interestingly enough, Catholic theologians have a term for this parochiality--

It's called the Commensal Table.
