Calm at the center...

All right, so Democrats in Congress want more spending on infrastructure in Obama's stimulus, and Republicans want more tax cuts and less spending overall. What else is new? Here's David Axelrod's response to the incoming fire:

“Obviously, it’s a big answer to a big problem and there are a lot of component parts to it,” Mr. Axelrod said in an interview after meeting with balky Senate Democrats. “These folks are not potted plants. They’re elected officials, and they’re doing their jobs.”

He added, “It’s a collective process, and we’re willing to listen to people’s ideas.”

Asked if they were willing to adopt people’s ideas, Mr. Axelrod said: “We’ll see. It depends on the idea.”

Ah, the no drama team. How long will the sang froid last?
