John Boehner just picked his three members of the super committee; Jeb Hensarling (R-TX), Dave Camp (R-MI), and Fred Upton (R-MI). These selections suggest an honest, good faith effort to come to a bipartisan agreement. Harry Reid appointed a good group earlier that will try to find common ground.
McConnell has suggested that his picks will all be on the far right. We'll see. Thanks to Boehner and Reid, Pelosi and McConnell can both pick hard partisans and 7 or 8 votes (of 12) on a centrist plan will still be well within reach.
It was about time for some good news.
