1. Screw it. Let it happen.

If the n-dimensional chess theory is right, this is the path to Obama getting everything he wants for us.

I just hope that what he wants is what we want.

2. Don't know anything about

n-dimensional chess theory or any other game theory...but I was just reading an editorial in the Washington Post written by a conservative which made one very good point. After the taxes go up for everyone there will be a lot more pressure to get a deal done, pressure coming from voters on the left and right.

I must admit, I'm be very curious to see just how long people here will be willing to hold out when they are paying higher taxes, or friends and family members have lost their unemployment benefits.
