    My guess is that the final agreement delays sequestration until at least June 2014.  If so, the bill passes the Senate with 70+ votes.  If sequestration is only 1 year, it squeaks by 55 votes as liberal Dems peel off.  If sequestration is less than 1 year, it fails.

    As for the House, this deal has 0% chance of passing this year under all circumstances.  I guess I could have just said that from the start.
