    hinted about. Forgetting that those who turn down proposals and opportunities containing same may find they did in fact pass up a once in a Presidential term possiblity when they act like public jerks instead. Knowing an idea is unpopular with Dems, O's base, is not the same thing as waving them or the hint of them as a sign that the issue in question has already been won, and looking for more, before that is in hand. And conveniently forgetting as well that compromise goes both ways, and they are alredy on notice that the shutdown and debt ceiling are not positions of the sort to be compromised by one way payoffs from the other side.
