    And I hope Dems. do keep in mind that we will be in a better negotiating position over the Cliff.  Here's why:

    1. Republicans majority in the House will only be 16, not 25 seats.

    2. Some of the Crazy House Tea Party Republicans will be gone.

    3. In the Senate, we should have some filibuster reform to help curb Republican obstruction.

    4. Boehner will get past his Speaker election which is a major factor in his deal making calculus right now.

    and

    5. Dems can propose a tax cut for the 98%, forcing the Republicans to either vote for it or again hold it hostage out of spite.

    Let's Go Over!
