Reconciliation

Recap: The payoffs of immigration; the uncertain link between good students and good teachers; and the Senate Democrats' disappointing final act.

Elsewhere:

1) Noam Scheiber's profiles David Axelrod's disillusionment.

2) Who should Obama have listened to?

3) Is the CBO right to think that America's maximum realistic revenue level is about 20 percent of GDP?

4) I'll be talking health care, taxes and the Pledge with Keith Olbermann tonight. Beginning of the program-ish.

Recipe of the day: Eggplant green curry.

"3) Is the CBO right to think that America's maximum realistic revenue level is about 20 percent of GDP?"

Considering state and local government accounts for nearly another 20% or so of GDP, yeah that's probably about right. This isn't Scandinavia.

"Who should Obama have listened to?"

The internal compass that those who voted for him believed he had, but that he unfortunately doesn't.

Ezra, I've got a genuinely important question for you: is it possible to make a worthwhile curry without coconut milk? Heart-clogging, worse-for-you-than-butter coconut milk?

Ezra, you haven't had an epiphany or anything, have you? You've made something like 3 posts today that would indicate you seem to be getting a clue.
