      For some reason, Democrats in Washington think that they should cut deals with the powers in Congress. But the currency of Washington is money and power (having monied friends). We don't have much leverage there.

      But we do have people power. That is what won us the election. And that is what we need to rely on to pressure Congress. Relying on Joe Lieberman and the other ConservaDems to cut a good deal for us before December 31 is not a good strategy. Begging Obama to give us some crumbs is also not a good strategy. We need to act like people who just won an election through our hard work, not like beggars hoping for a handout.
