5. What would he cave over?

The cuts are going to happen unless Republicans do something and Republicans want the cuts..There is nothing to bargain with or for.. He certainly is not going to say go ahead and cut and we won't ask for any new revenues.. What would that get him? Republicans are going to allow sequestration to take effect and then introduce a bill to increase Defense spending by the same amount as is being cut and then dare Democrats to vote against a Defense Bill... Democrats are scared shitless of being called weak on Defense....I would bet about half will vote with Republicans on such a bill..
