Following Up

A few days back, I wrote about the struggles of Governor Mark Dayton and the Minnesota legislature as a blueprint for President Obama should the GOP reach a state of brinksmanship with the debt ceiling.
I thought I would post about the looming deadline. It looks like the GOP is going to play chicken. You'd think they'd learn by now: if you're going one on one with a chief executive, you need a leader of comparable weight and majesty to offset his bully pulpit advantage. Legislators simply don't have this stroke.
Dayton wins, hands down.
