John Avlon: The president has to lead on deficit reduction

John Avlon says President Obama has to lead on deficit reduction, but unless the President is willing to lead on election reform and support the growing ranks of independent voters in the country, there won't be any real change.

Be in the know: Today's political bullet points (CNN/John King USA) From John Avlon: This speech is critical for repairing the president's credibility with independent voters – and he should not think that merely returning to his 'raise taxes on everyone making over 250k' riff will cut it – either politically or practically. The president has to lead on this issue and the time is now.
