Thoughts: Why is Pres. Obama shoving the TPP down our throats? [View all]

I can't recall a Democratic President ever hustling so hard to do the opposite of what Congressional Democrats and the conscious Democratic base wants.

I'm guessing that it's some combination of a promise made to one or more rich patrons that want to be even richer, and wanting to be in the record books with a trade deal larger than NAFTA. I don't think he's the type that worries about how much cash he'll make after he leaves office.
