The latest bad news for Team Obama/Reid/Pelosi comes from Gallup in the form of its weekly generic ballot.

Here at TalkingSides.com we're taking a break from the rough and tumble world of American politics to remember one of the more genteel arts. So without further ado, we offer these snippets of lyrical verse:

Her future in DC as chancy.

Instead, according to Democratic aides, the final compromise talks will be a three-way negotiation involving Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada), Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-California) and the White House.
