    I find it hard to understand how the Democrats might conceivably NOT get any of what Kilgore and Teixeira are saying here, after all the Republican behaviors of the last year and three months, and more generally, after the last fifteen years.  What is there in that period that would lead anybody to think they would put down their box of rocks for even a moment, no matter what the importance of an issue?  That's been one of the great disappointments of the Obama period so far.

    I can't fault Obama.  He doesn't run the Senate and he's not the Speaker of the House.  Overall, the Dems seem to be plain flummoxed.  Maybe the Health Care victory will help; but I don't see signs of that yet..
