Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) shared a moment with the president, who assured him that public opinion on intervention in Syria is not likely to change as a result of his address to the nation. “I’m good, but not that good,” he told Kirk.
Obama told GOP senators public opinion will remain against Syria strikes. "I'm good, but not that good," Sen. Kirk says, quoting Obama.

It’s reminiscent of the president’s preview of his speech on the anniversary of Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream,” where he cautioned against “elevated expectations” and assured supporters his speech wouldn’t be as good. Good, but not that good.
