Mike Coffman managed to adroitly shift from being part of the problem in the shutdown and Washington gridlock to part of the solution.
He announced on Tuesday a change in position from being against to being in favor of a budget without Republican-demanded conditions related to Obamacare and other issues – a Clean CR in Washington speak.
Coffman published a well-crafted column in Wednesday’s Denver Post explaining his position and the need for compromise in a divided government with shared powers and received a pat from the Post’s editorial board Thursday morning for seeing the light.
Well played Mike.
