McDonnell and that such a loss would reflect on Deeds’s failings rather than on Obama’s popularity.
“It is frustrating to read, because that’s not what we’ve been hearing from anybody over there,” Deeds said. “I’m just not sure where the talk is coming from. It just doesn’t make sense. . . . There’s been no disagreements between us of which I’m aware.”
The president, according to a senior Democratic aide who attended his discussion, told House Dems that newly-elected Rep. Bill Owens proved that members could run on a platform of comprehensive reform and still be elected to Congress.
"He said to look at Bill Owens," the aide recalled. "There is a House seat that's been in Republican hands for more than one hundred years [since 1993, actually]. But Owens didn't run away from reform. He campaigned on it. And he still got elected."
