Waiting for the Flop

Ed Gamble, 12/20/12:
Agreeing to allow slightly higher taxes on a tiny fraction of incredibly rich Americans -- the same people who have benefited hugely from the last two decades -- is literally everything Boehner can offer as a compromise; he can't even conceive of compromising any further than that.

(If Boehner were sneakier and more of a gambling man, he'd double down on Republican end-the-deficit-now rhetoric and call for all of the Clinton rates to return.)
