On Wednesday, I wrote about the closing argument President Donald Trump was making to skittish Republican legislators. Vote for the bill, he's been telling them, or you'll lose your seat.
That night, I received a call from a Democratic senator. He'd read the piece, and it had reminded him of the closing argument President Barack Obama made to skittish Democratic legislators. Vote for the bill, Obama told them, because it's worth losing your seat.
If that doesn't sum up the entire difference between their approaches right there.
