"First, the White House could blink," Clinton said. "I hope that won't happen. I don't think they should blink."
From Bubba's mouth to God's ears. Does our fair weather "Give 'Em Hell, Barry" inspire much confidence beyond Chris Matthews's unshakable faith in His Barackness, that he won't cave at the eleventh hour, and sell US ALL (not Chris and the Idiot Punditocracy) down the river? Remember, Chris and his pals, including that imbecile Jessica Yellin over at CNN, will ONLY LOSE if a deal is not struck, and their various stock market investments turn into penny stocks and junk bonds. The wealthier they are, the harder they'll fall, save for some shady speculators in doomsday scenarios. That's how it is generally predicted if the U.S. defaults on its obligations. On the other hand, if President Obama and the GOP whack us in the middle class, as expected by the Idiot Punditocracy, all will be well with Chris and his CLASSMATES, as once again we're stuck with the bill for their excesses.
