There is one metric to watch in all this - increasing taxes on the wealthy, also known as progressivity.

Obama will be happy to concede a lot in a "grand bargain" if he can get something like "The Buffet Rule" included. Should that happen, most progressives will be outraged. I will cheer.

Regardless of how small the progressivity appears to progressives, it will perceived as the ultimate betrayal by the Tea Party caucus.

Let the civil war commence.
