As of 2 pm on Sunday we are still without a deal to raise the debt ceiling. Both sides have done a fine job of blaming each other, and grandstanding in the latest editon of political theater.
I still believe that in the end some last minute "Oh my gosh in the 11th hour, what an amazing deal" will be struck. Why so much hope? Easy answer, because at the end of the day, both sides love this spotlight and power that goes with it. Most importantly when we go to the theater we like closure, a prefer a happy ending.
