It's important to recognize that the relationship that Mario Draghi has with European political leaders is unique.
In the US, Bernanke frequently tells lawmakers to get their act together (on fiscal policy) but he really has no sway over them. He has absolutely no leverage over Congress to get them to do anything. At worst, he can give them a stern talking to.
In Europe, cajoling and finessing politicians is a key part of Draghi's job. Draghi uses monetary policy sometimes as a stick, such as when he let Italian yields drift up last year in order to hasten the ouster of Berlusconi. Now he's using it as a carrot, encouraging Europe to put make progress on the bailout funds, and bailout plans.
