    I think the Speaker will let the a short term shutdown happen. I think that's his only realistic option within the GOP. After a few days of shutdown, the political winds will determine what happens next. The first shutdown in 1995 was for five days. We could be looking at Tuesday through Friday of next week.

      You may be right.  And I don't think Dems are much in the mood for throwing Boehner a bone.  Shutting down the government for a few days to a week may temporarily lance the boil of rage on John Boehner's right flank.  Can't see any other logical outcome.
