    for this--you are not in the Oval Office, negotiating this deal right now. Rather, you are sitting in your cozy home, at your laptop, with a cup of coffee at your elbow, playing armchair quarterback.

    You pay the president's salary, with your tax dollars, to cut his holiday vacation short and deal with these awful people who are dealing in bad faith, who wish him the very worst. You are entrusting Obama to do a vital deal, shrewdly, with compassion.

    It's here they got the range/ and the machinery for change/ and it's here they got the spiritual thirst. --Leonard Cohen
