It's the eighth day of the the partial government shutdown, and President Obama says he'll only negotiate with House Republicans if they allow a vote to reopen the government and agree to raise the debt ceiling.
In the Crossfire tonight at 6:30pm ET, Former Deputy White House Press Secretary and Democratic strategist Bill Burton, and author, columnist and attorney David Limbaugh, who is Rush Limbaugh's brother.
Burton supports the president's refusal to negotiate, while Limbaugh says Republicans should force him to the table.

(CNN) – Monday's CNN poll results just plain surprised, almost shocked me.
When I saw the poll was due to be released, I expected the Republicans to be taking a beating considering the terms President Barack Obama and his staff have been using to describe them over the past 10 days ("extremists," "people with a bomb strapped to their chest") and the unfair, derogatory press coverage of their position.
The results are so dramatically better for Republicans and worse for the Democrats and Obama than I expected that I was curious to see just how much better Republicans are faring during the shutdown of 2013 (and how much worse the president and the Democrats are faring) than in comparable polls of the 1995-96 shutdowns.
