Reps got to cut significant spending.
Dems got to preserve funding for some of the programs they believe are important for the immediate and long-term future for the country.
The President got to avoid a government shutdown on his watch (for now...until the next budget battle looms).
The nation gets to see their government at work and finding common ground for a change.
And like it or not, but the President did show excellent leadership here. I don't think anyone can deny that without his intervention a compromise wouldn't have been reached because both sides were so far at odds with one another. Admit it, the President stepped up and allowed both sides to find common ground.
