    It never ceases to amaze me that it is the dems that negotiate at all times from a position of weakness. Although there is talk of raising the rates on capital gains to 20% and on dividends, the Pres. should have come out on Nov 7th with a mandate and instead of proposing  top rates of 39.6% going back to Clinton days, he should have proposed Reagan rates of 50% on the top 2% and invoked their grand saviour. He  could negotiate down from there and still have all the cards on the fiscal cliff and expiration of the Bush tax cuts.
