President Obama deserves to lose this one. He trotted the Newtown folks on cameras, and the news people asked questions like "What does this bill mean to you"?, and "How does this make you feel"?

Your experience was tragic and evil, and the best you can come up with to defend your kids is background checks?

Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) pounding home the final legislative nails earlier today. USA Today has a useful primer on what to expect this afternoon and evening, including the items liberals will be watching most carefully:
