Debt deal

Owens: debt deal won't hurt.

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' appearance in in Congress yesterday earned wide applause and speculation about whether she'll run for re-election in 2012.

The deal to raise the debt ceiling while slashing trillions from the deficit heads for a vote in the Senate today.

The Washington Post writes that the deal "risks compromising fragile economic growth."

The deal helps "crystallize," Obama adviser David Axelrod says, debates over the role of government going into 2012.

After all that, America could still see a credit downgrade, the treasury secretary says.

"Angry liberals seek silver lining," the Washington Post says.
