The Fiscal Cliff Roller Coaster

Charlie Cook: "It is a source of tremendous amusement to me that one day of every week contains a spate of news stories suggesting movement toward a tax and budget deal, only to be followed the next week by stories declaring that imminent disaster lies ahead and an apocalyptic cliff dive is just around the corner. It's hard to figure out whom to feel more sorry for: the eternal optimists who think that contrary to practically anything that has ever happened in Washington, something this big would ever be quick and easy to resolve; or the profound pessimists who cannot imagine a deal under any circumstance; or, for that matter, the reporters who alternately buy into one scenario or the other."
