What is the Real White House Position?

Jon Cohn reports some positive news:

For all of the mixed messages of the last week, sources say that President Obama himself remains absolutely committed to pursuing comprehensive reform--more so, in fact, than many of his political advisers. And if you’ve listened to him talk about it publicly, particularly in his Tampa speech the day after the State of the Union, he certainly sounds determined not to give up--perhaps because so much of Washington thinks he should.

The White House, then, needs to do a better job at presenting a unified front. Rahm Emanuel undermining the president's approach -- whether as a matter of strategy or stupidity -- is only succeeding in sending mixed messages. Not a very smart way to whip votes in the House.
