    the president's "deserve a vote" line was its own thing, quite different in substance and context than Jackson's, and spoke beyond the gun control issue to the whole issue of the GOP's abuse of the filibuster.  It's a line that can come back over many an issue that the GOP tries to obstruct, and I hope it does.

      We can all take something out of it.

      Honestly, after reading Greg's comments earlier, I've warmed up to it a bit more than I had, but I still think it's only OK.  Not up there with "ask not", "day of infamy","tear down that wall", or "four score and seven", but not bad.
