    ... doesn't that mean that all participitants of each deal are subject to strict oversight? I'm sure Byron Dorgan is chompin' at da bit waiting to oversee it. He already doesn't like it and has promised to try to block the carte blanche "fast-track-authority" clause Bush wants.

    The Dems surely thought this through through before making the deal, right?

    I could see this being a shady deal a year or so ago but...

    This makes 3 diaries on this subject in 2 days and I'm still not sure whether this "deal" is good or bad for America. Or perhaps it just comes down to the difference between being "bad or terrible" for America.

    IF the Dems made this deal as you perscribe then that means all Pelosi's "A new direction for America" talking points have been nothing but empty, disingenuous rhetoric.

    Just sayin'

      If it's not a complete rollover to bush and K street, then why not release the details. If NAM and engler are already on board, did they get the details already? If that's the case, then there's definitely something wrong. engler isn't one to trust Democrats on anything. He knows something or else he wouldn't already be on board.
