Obama Done in By Democrats on "Fast-Track" Trade Deals

It seems that Obama cannot win even when it comes to his own party.
In a 126-302 vote Friday, Democrats helped reject a displaced workers’ aid program they usually support that was needed to proceed to a final vote on fast-track authority. The House quickly passed, 219-211, the fast-track bill though it won’t go to Obama’s desk unless the worker aid bill also passes.
This looked to be low hanging fruit that could go a long way toward some kind of legacy. It seems that Pelosi just doesn't want that to happen. I guess he still has the idea of a nuclear Iran to push forward instead.
