    I've got my fingers crossed that this has all been political theater and that the Dems will come through with a package that leaves "entitlements" alone and extends unemployment and tax breaks for income under $250k.

    I loved the populist president who ran for re-election. I see a glimmer that he knows what got him there and he's willing to fight.  

    I still wish they would start their negotiations with something far more progressive. It seems like the left is always being painted as being as unyielding, undemanding, and unreasonable as the right.  Yet if we were, we'd not have lost so much ground over the past twelve years.
