So we know trhere will be a format and there will tables not podiums and the summit will go on for 6 hrs and include lunch and an hour break...What could possibly get done of substance in that time on an issue this big.

I really think the dems have read the palm wrong and should not rahm this through - take a page from the state of thew union and move on while perhaps comeing back to some areas of agreement or that are less then sweeping...

instead next weeks story will be about nuclear option and party of " no". Keep an eye on Iraq..I think after years we have dropped the ball diplomatically att he worst time. Come on Crocker, Khalzaid, Baker we need ya!! Get these sects talking and those 400 band candidates reinstated.
