    until the final handshakes -- aka, votes in 2 chambers.  Sometimes negotiations for deals reflect that the seeming "loser" hand is the winner because the other side folds.

    It is 11:33 p.m. as I write this comment.  Let me know when the votes are finished in both chambers and the President signs.  The "cliff" is less than 1/2 hour away and the House is at the bars or in bathroom stalls.

    •  Yeah, I don't count this as a (0+ / 0-)

      done deal at all. But it is what is being reported as "the final deal" at the moment so it is worth looking at as objectively as possible. And as someone else commented, I have no doubt Boehner had the deal or parameters of it run by him before they announced they had a deal. Whether he can deliver of course is an entirely different story but it is 2013 now so it's all tax cuts from here on out.
