    If a ~$4T deficit reduction committee made it past the supercommittee, Congress, and the president, which party wins politically? I personally think such a plan would be the best realistic avenue available anyway, so I would support it on its own merits. But I'm still interested in politics, and I wonder whether the passage of a comprehensive plan in that range wouldn't help the president, since he's often voiced support for such a plan throughout the deficit reduction process.

    Thoughts?

    The president already had an opportunity to endorse such a plan. I hope none of these idiots win, to be honest with you. We should wipe the slate clean in 2012. One of the reasons the house of representatives is voted in every 2 years is so the people can 86 the whole lot of them if they deem it necessary. This election we get the chance to get rid of the president also, let's not waste it.

    I would hope it would be a win-win situation... for all of us.

    I agree. On an inferior secondary level, though, I'm still curious about the politics.
