    in particular, not the MIC, or the dozen or so other issues you brought up, but if the diarist is cool with it rant away.

    •  It was about that, and the tactics and strategy (0+ / 0-)

      that are involved in the whole thing.  That's where I think the "off topic" issues are germane.

    •  Whether he'll cave or not, that's the issue, (0+ / 0-)

      and bringing up numerous past instances of caving (or, in some cases, leading the charge backward) is how one makes the point that caving is the most likely scenario, no?

      •  I didn't read the diary in that context (0+ / 0-)

        therefore your comment seemed out of context to me...After reading the diary itself more closely your comment, though I disagree with most of it, does make more sense.

        Personally I don't think he will "cave" on this one, if for no other reason than there is an election coming up and he knows it will hurt him with his base- both with the environmentalists and the people who think he just caves too much in general.
