    he wants to make a grand bargain, he wants to get an agreement in place that will last, and allow us to get our economy going.  He is willing to cut social security, just not benefits or the age limit.  Without the threat he's eager and  willing to compromise.  

    That's him, he was that in the primary and he's still that.  He'll offer them something less than he did before, but more than our left (which includes me) wants. No one will be entirely happy, he'll leave no one out.  

    He won't balance the budget with cuts to the needy, but he'll probably make some cuts on the upper middle class.  He gave them that break, but he'll take it back in closing loopholes and in eliminating certain subsidizes.   He's got professionals in place, he has a plan and he knows his own limits.  

    "oh no, not four more years of hope and change?" Karl Christian Rove
