This debt ceiling deal is going to be a tough slog.
But I want to quote House Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who told me on "The Call" Tuesday, "there's an air of willingness” in the debt talks with Vice President Biden.
And as you know from my interview with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, she is shifting to the center and told me that everything should be on the table to reduce the federal deficit. Those are her words and she said several times.
She also said that Speaker John Boehner's plan that every dollar increase in the debt ceiling must be accompanied by a dollar reduction in spending is "interesting”. She didn't trash it and that's important.
