    Dems picked up a few seats, though didn't quite take the House, in 1998 because the GOP jumped the shark. As tawdry as their Lewinsky-mongering was, default would be much worse.

    I could see it going either way. What you say is true. But the political dynamics also are changed, I think, in that Obama does not need to worry about re-election anymore (I think he was much more worried than the GOP about the 2012 election in August 2011). And the country is more clearly down on the radical element of the House GOP than it was in August 2011.

    Republicans...think the American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it. Harry S. Truman
