Their View | Both sides have to win for the Washington standoff to end

House Speaker John Boehner’s suggestion that he’s determined to avoid a federal debt default, and that he'll pass a measure to that effect with Democratic votes, if necessary, gives both sides in the great Washington standoff a possible way out. To make it work, each will have to give a little as well as take a little. It won’t be elegant, but the prospect of lifting the threat of a ruinous default – preferably, once and for all – makes that a secondary consideration.
