    "Chess not Checkers". In that deal, Obama skillfully combined the budget, debt limit, and sequester into one deal. Once this "grand bargain" is struck, (balancing the budget in 10years) he will be rid of the debt issue for the rest of his presidency. Plus, with Boehner already caving on the Hassert Rule (and Harry getting rid of the filibuster), the deal will look even more Democratic than we could have realized even at the beginning of this month. Chess indeed.
