    There is only a Grand Bargain if the opposition has political power, and the GOP's political power right now is directly proportional to the strength of the "it was THISCLOSE" narrative.

    We need to drill over and over again on this site just how resounding this win was and kill any 'deeply divided country' and 'does Obama have a mandate' chatter from the beltway class - once we at DKos are absolutely sick of talking about it, it will probably finally just be starting to get absorbed in the mainstream.

      "a couple of Cadillacs" actually. So, there is another connection here. Middle class people see very clearly that these kinds of people are not on their side.  People from Detroit are glad that people buy Cadillacs, but most people in Michigan don't have spouses with 2 Cadillacs. Nor does anyone in the country feel like paying more taxes and working longer so that the Mrs. Romneys of the world can have another car, horse, etc.

      So there are all kinds of links between Obama's Michigan win and the entitlement stuff that we have over the years paid for.
