Political Gameship

As the House passed DADT today, marking a historic civil rights victory for the country and specifically the gay community on the horizon, the Senate passed the Obama-Republicans-Clinton Saved Tax Deal. It appears there may be some backdoor politicking going on - "Liberal House Dems, You support the tax deal, and we, the moderate and conservative Senate Democrats and Moderate Republicans will vote for DADT."

Not a bad year - (projected mandated healthcare, economic recovery packages, etc) and with a 45% Obama approval rating, all of the hoopla predicting the demise of his presidency, it turns out, it just, well - hoopla.
