Deficit Deal Very Close?

It's Sunday with only two more days to go and I'm seeing reports that the deficit deal is close. I wonder how much of this is real and how much is show? I'm leaning to a lot of show on both sides. Both sides want to look good for their core constituencies with the 2012 presidential election looming. (Over a year to go and it's looming!) Despite the fact that they're idiots by my definition, these are smart individuals. Certainly, they knew that extreme proposals on either side were DOA with the other side. I guess they had to make them to show their bases that they are serious. I guess we American Persons will just have to wait to see if they really can get their act together and do our business rather than just benefit their own.
