    to use the debt ceiling for blackmail will be the obverse side of the coin that has been his use of many of George W Bush's expansions of executive power.  Granted, Obama is much smarter than W, actually believes in the Constitution in ways that W just couldn't begin to, and had been much less reckless in a muiltitude of ways.

    But he still is the holder of the office of President of the United States - and he's going to see any real effort by the Speaker to force him on the debt ceiling as an attack on the power of the Executive, and he will NOT negotiate or back down on this one.
