    higher than 10.10.  It makes sense from a fairness perspective and as a negotiating tactic.  But I'll give the President credit.  He came up from 9$ and also he's pushing for this when he really didn't have to.  I feel like his heart is in the right place and it's politically smart too.  

    Almost the entire freaking country is in favor of this, and 10 bucks an hour cannot be successfully portrayed as excessive by anyone.  If a business can't afford $10 an hour it shouldn't be in business.

    So I will give him credit and hope he pushes like hell for this.  Few issues have the punch of this one.  It's a winner on many levels.
