Maybe we'll see some compromise get done here in the next few weeks. Both sides hopefully are facing the political realities, backing away from their far-wingers, embracing the middle as best they can.
Grover Norquist of course is fighting back, trying to hold on to his power postion, as is Nancy Pelosi. Those two kind of represent the far wings, and hopefully they're being marginalized. The Center of both parties have to gain control, and it seems like they are doing so.
