Has Eric Cantor Already Won?

In case you missed it, I spent some time last week explaining the state of play on the debt ceiling debate, and trying my best to answer a question: So how did this go from an "adult moment" for the GOP, and maybe a leverage point for Democrats and taxes, to a no-surrender GOP battle for spending cuts?

I'm also spending much of the week in Aspen for the Atlantic Ideas Festival, so posting may be a little lighter than usual. On the plus side, it will feature -- for the first time! -- some ideas.
