Barak will win. Boehner doesn't have half the cajones Gingrich did and even Gingrich eventually caved. JMO.
Why is it that it's the House that shuts down the govt and not the President? Aren't they both responsible? I see what the left does there. Kinda like when the left had their army of PR/media people ready to attack the SC because they thought the ACA was going down. They were going to say the court was the hands of the Republicans...as if it has never been in the hands of the left. Afterwards, it's "ACA is Constitutional. Get over it." That's true for Citizen's United too, which didn't hurt them in this election afterall.
