  •  Well, the State of the Union is Feb. 12th, (4+ / 0-)

    and I suspect by then the President would have gotten through the bulk of his major nomination fights.  Then I suspect the budget fight will begin in earnest and that's compressed period of about two months right on through tax season (which for most of Obama's base is a good time of year). So he will have some room to maneuvre around them.

    Now that we can stop all this "one on one behind the scenes negotiations" crap and get back to normal lawmaking, maybe the President can get the better of them as he did here.

    The only problem I forsee is one of these fucking bipartisan "gangs" forming and fucking things up.
