    Sorry, I am not willing to play chicken with a crazy president worried about his "legacy".  When the Republicans used hardball tactics over a budget fight in '95 (which had a lot less at stake than a war), President Clinton, who had suffered a horrible defeat for Dems in the '94 midterm elections, came out the victor.

    I think that's great that you are thinking creatively on this, but I am sure the Dems entertained this approach, and deemed it not doable.
