    Bottom line: the only thing that can stop the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy expiring is if the White House or Democrats get cold feet. And the good news is that there's no sign of that happening.
    I'm betting the Dems/Obama will give something significant away in advance - the cold feet equivalent of putting on socks (not to be confused with putting on those comfortable shoes we heard Obama talk about when the unions were getting hammered in Wisconsin).  They will cast it as an act of good faith (excuse me while I laugh my coffee out my nose).

      I'm sure you're aware that many involved with the Wisconsin Recall did not want Obama anywhere near the place.

      You know, it's one thing to be a substantive critic of the president, it's another thing to hold on to every disappointment and grudge for dear life.
