    will give the votes for a clean passage, but I doubt they'd do it to a ransoming, at which point both the Senate and White House would have a chance to turn down whatever the ransom is.

    Now that the message has failed, GOP should vote for the clean bill.  If only there were a way to spin that to their advantage...  I'm sure the "Responsible Republicans" wish that this were an issue after the various filing deadlines for their party primary challengers.  If it were, they'd be able to avoid having a rush of Tea Party types filing to punish the Republicans who passed a clean debt ceiling bill.  As it is, I'm sure the Tea Partiers are ready and waiting to file as soon as they have an excuse.
