  •  I have been forty years a lawyer doing deals. (0+ / 0-)

    The best deal is one where both sides are somewhat unhappy, but not unhappy enough not to do a deal at all. Because that means neither side overbore the other completely, and set up round 2. That's in the private sector. In doing deals, it is the rule that each side to get a real deal must give up something it wants, something it opposes, in the real world. Is somebody here thinking O is being different in that and that he could beat the Monday deadline and also get a deal where his side won everything?
