The headline over a Brian Resnick item at National Journal reads:

Obama: 'We've Learned Not to Make Wild Promises’

Well, one thinks, that covers a lot of territory.  And who is to say that it isn’t a kind of wild promise, itself?  Still, there is hope.  Maybe this means a reduction (even a big one) in the number of those speeches that start late and feature a bunch of strangers standing dutifully behind the President, watching his back.

That would be a win.
