Democrats back away from a double win

By going to the compromise the Democrats may have allowed the Republicans to sprinkle a little rose water on the stench coming from red state portion of the chamber. And perhaps some of them will have avoided the outraged they have earned for now. But more importantly I think the Democrats have missed an opportunity to lose a battle in order to win a war. When the thin Republican majority fades as it inevitably will as more of their chickens come home to roost, Democrats would have been in a far better position to get this country back on track that it will be now.
