Comment: Harry will try to determine where the line will be drawn

Harry will try to determine where the line will be drawn

by the GOP. Then he will walk right up to that line with his legislation.

This is a game of poker, and we're at heads up. There is risk to the Republicans here too. If they filibuster something that the majority of the American people want -- and the vast majority - something like 70+% want universal background checks --- then they end up looking like "obstructionists."

That is exactly how Obama wants to paint them: As obstructionists. So there is quite a risk here to both sides. It is quite high stakes.

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
