Obama: I’m not a particularly ideological person

SEATTLE, Nov 24 (Reuters) – President Barack Obama, on a
fundraising swing in Seattle on Sunday, described himself as
“not a particularly ideological person” despite ongoing

Fresh from a deal with Iran over its nuclear program, Obama
started a western swing on Sunday that will include stops in
California to raise money for Democrats, tout his record on the
economy, and push for reform of U.S. immigration laws.
