    these laws be due to his fear that they'd ultimately be upheld by today's SCOTUS, and thus set in stone?

Or is it something else, perhaps a reluctance to spend political capital?

        The jury's still out on how this "cliff" stuff will unfold, but I don't have a very good feeling. I fear that once again he's going to fold on a good hand because he's SO easy to bluff and he fears losing more than he likes winning.
