    e if that is what he needs to do to avoid default. I think everyone on this site is dead wrong about this one.

    If we don't want Obama to cave, we need to find a solution where he's in a strong position even if the Republicans aren't bluffing. I posted a diary that tried to lay out just such a scenario, but there's not much enthusiasm for it.

    This upcoming 'showdown' concerns me deeply.
