President Obama -- who has announced his interest in starring in a sequel of his own -- signaled his willingness to accept draconian spending cuts, while Mitch McConnell couched his Snape-like approach in "crassly political terms," flatly declaring: "I refuse to help Barack Obama get reelected." Meanwhile, with the emphasis on debt reduction, another week passed without the stars of the show tackling the jobs crisis -- or, as it's known in Washington, "That Which Shall Not Be Prioritized."
