Gwen's Take

Standing at the White House podium on Wednesday after members of the House Republican caucus concluded their meeting with the President about the budget, press secretary Jay Carney described the exchange to assembled reporters.

“There was no line in the sand,” he declared. (Translation: no one got up and stomped from the room, but no agreement was reached either.)

The Politics of Panic

Gwen's Take

It felt as if everyone was rushing to the ramparts this week. From Times Square to the Gulf Coast to Greece and Wall Street, the world has seemed positively out of breath.

Part of the reason, of course, is the pace of events.
