McCaskill: "I Hope He Stands His Ground"

President-elect Barack Obama is striving for as much bipartisanship as he can squeeze out of Congress on his estimated $775 billion dollar economic stimulus package.
But how bipartisan is bipartisan enough?
Sen. Claire McCaskill told CQ Politics that complaints from Democrats about Obama's business tax proposals and the size of the tax cut demonstrates the difficulty of Obama's goal.
"There’s been some pushback from the Democratic Caucus on how willing he is to embrace some of the ideas put forth by Republicans on tax cuts," McCaskill is quoted in CQ. "I hope he continues to stand his ground."
