I think Social Security is off the table for this rounds. It's sound for another 25 years and it doesn't contribute to the deficit.
But, yes I do see Obama doing entitlement reform before he leaves office. The r's will make the best deal possible and sign off on the deal. The R's know they could never lead on entitlement reform.
