  •  The reason the President has won in the polls (7+ / 0-)

    is because he has had the high ground of ending the shutdown and raising the cap as a responsible act of Congress. He has positioned the GOP as using innapropriate leverage to push their legislative agenda. As soon as he joins them in the leverage game he runs the risk that if the country defaults he will share the blame more equally.

    In my view the President should stay on the high ground and hopefully obtain an end to the shutdown and a clean debt ceiling increase without putting more than a small bone on the table.
