    thought out for how to fight the debt ceiling issue, and understands what their remaining bargaining leverage is vs the GOP in that fight.  I'm not thereby claiming that whatever course of strategy they have mapped out will necessarily prove to work out nearly as well as they plan or hope, or that they might not prove to be misreading the political lay of the land coming up.  But nevertheless, I do think they're going forward with what they think is a sound, well-thought out plan.  I just hope they surprise us and prove to understand how to successfully outmaneuver the GOP on the debt ceiling, rather than being surprised to find themselves on the hopelessly short end.
