President Obama wasn't in the room when negotiators hammered out the details of the landmark budget agreement that cleared Congress on Wednesday, but his fingerprints are all over the deal.
Under the circumstances, staying out of it and resolving it for the short run was the best he could hope for," said Stephen J. Wayne, a professor at Georgetown University's department of government and a researcher on the American presidency.
"This president does not like to get into the trenches and fight over nitty-gritty stuff," Mr. Wayne said. "This is a very risk-averse president. I think this guy would rather play it safe, as long as he's not being criticized for not getting involved."
