THE CAVE INS ARE SO ROUTINE THEY MAY AS WELL CAUCUS AT TORA BORA:

Dems cave on budget; conservatives still wary (Martin Kady II, 12/13/07, Politico)

Democrats last night agreed to cut billions from their spending bills to meet President Bush's demands on the fiscal 2008 budget, but conservatives are already nitpicking the appropriations breakthrough.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Wednesday afternoon Democrats would meet Bush's demand for $933 billion in total spending by implementing across the board cuts, a move that showed Democrats have been backed into a corner by a president unwilling to negotiate on appropriations.


Nitpicking? They smell blood.
