UM: Obama

The Detroit News reports that a Republican Congressman from Michigan, Fred Upton, is on a list of guests to watch Sunday’s Super Bowl with President Obama in the White House. The article quotes Michael Traugott, a UM political science professor: ”This president really believes in bipartisanship. He wants to build bridges to Republicans. Socializing is part of the package. He didn’t get Republican support in the House for the stimulus bill. But it’s early in the process, and he clearly hasn’t given up.” [Source]
