It's a debate tactic (not strategy). You say that "I agree with my opponent on X, but I don't agree with his stance on Y". It makes you seem more "above pettiness" and willing to see your opponent's stance, yet grounded in your own belief.

It surprisingly is very effective. Bill Clinton was a master at it. Go back and watch his old debates.

He may have agreed on certain issues, but clarified the changes he wanted.

Yes. He has dignity. And he isn't so afraid of his own convictions that he can't comment on where even opponents can stand together on certain issues.

Doesn't anybody think it would be weird if they didn't agree on anything at all? They're both human beings (well...Obama is), they're both Americans, they both have families, won't there be quite a few things they should agree on?

Obviously Repbulicans dont know that when you say "however,...." and an INTELLIGENT statement follows, there is more to it.
