Congratulations Speaker Boehner, you just won yourself more animosity from the ideologues in your own party. Boehner got some budget cuts, but he didn't get as much as he could, and Planned Parenthood is still funded, which means that there are going to be some angry Republicans out there today.
On top of everything else, Obama comes out of this reaffirming his bi-partisan image which means that he is winning the war of public approval and political perception.
If the government shutdown deal is a victory, these are the kinds of "victories" that Speaker Boehner could probably live without.
