  4. The President:

    The tonal shiftThe most tangible development over the course of Tuesday was the subtle, yet very critical, shift in tone coming from the Democratic members who have held significant sway -- or even control -- over the state of play in White House. Red lines that had been drawn were blurred. Public spats that spilled into the open played out again behind closed doors. Yes, the details still need significant work. No, not all members are there yet.But, there was a recognition that something had to happen and fast before The President leaves for Scotland. It's a shift from where members were just before the recess, when Pelosi was forced to postpone a vote on the bipartisan infrastructure bill because factions could not come together. The impending deadline of Glasgow paired with the reality of a midterm election just a year away and the constant barrage of stories about Democratic infighting all coalesced and began chipping away at the resolve of folks who up until this point had demanded they get everything or give nothing at all.Here's your signFor example : Members of the progressive caucus started to say they may not need a full Senate vote on the Build Back Better package before they vote for the bipartisan infrastructure bill. Members in that meeting said that is because The President made it abundantly clear that any bill that The President backed and said would have the Senate's support, would. Analysis : Gas prices are high. That could mess with Bidens climate agenda.
