Apt

It's starting to look like the Senate might not be giving the President nationalsocialized health care by Christmas, despite his hour-long chiding session Tuesday. In that meeting, President Obama is quoted as telling the Senators they were "on the precipice" of history.

H'mm, I thought if you found yourself in that sort of situation, the point was to not jump off?

The phrase jarred me a little, too. Generally people who are in favor speak of being on the "cusp." People who are against speak of the "precipice" or the "edge" because it invokes the universal distaste for falling off precipices and edges.
