      want to contradict him.  I think he's taking the more hopeful tone that Jay Carney did.  Wait and see.  I wrote a diary about this topic yesterday and I used a different tone.

      Do you remember seeing video of a Grover Norquist interview a month ago during the fiscal cliff hysteria?  He talked about dribbling out the debt limit to President Obama three months at a time, or a month at a time, if he's good, otherwise they could do two weeks at a time.  It got widespread airtime on all the popular media.  This is that plan.
