Saving Face

Charlie Cook: "Too many Democrats seem to be enjoying this debacle, appearing to view the fight as a terrific political opportunity to inflict some real damage on the Republican Party. It certainly looks as if Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a boxer in his early years, thinks he has his foot on the throat of House Speaker John Boehner and the GOP and is not interested in taking it off."

"Somehow, though, Obama and congressional Democrats have to give Republicans, at least the ones who want to resolve this--and I would put Boehner in that category, regardless of what he has said in recent days--a place to land, some way to get to yes."
