So long as Republicans maintain their posture of reasonable willingness to negotiate a solution to the critical issues of debt and Obamacare, while Democrats dig in with their "refuse to negotiate" stance, the longer this goes on the better it will be for the GOP.

I think everyone is entirely too focused on the short-term political gamesmanship and not focused enough on the long-term benefit to the country that would result from some fundamental policy changes.  Sooner or later this will shift from short-term to long-term, and when it does the Dems will bend.

In the meantime, all of this is being greeted with one giant yawn on Main Street.  Mostly, it's merely provided a mechanism for fund-raising for both parties.

Plus, people are waking up to the fact that 85% of the federal government is still open.

Some 'shutdown'...
