    Here's the thing. There are only two kinds of people who give a damn about a presidential legacy besides the president himself: his supporters and his enemies. I think we know how President Obama's enemies feel about him, don't we? They are not going to celebrate any "achievement" no matter how much they appreciate him taking the heat for doing their dirty work. But if they are assuming that liberals want deficit reduction and entitlement "reform" as much as the centrists do, they are making a huge mistake. They do not. And it's liberals who will fight for his legacy, not centrists. Centrists are basically utilitarians who could not care less about any of that.
