Bush will probably take the deal as he needs to show progress on the foreign policy front.

http://www.cnn.com/2007/WORLD/asiapcf/02/13/nkorea.talks/index.html>Ahead of the deal, a senior administration official in Washington told CNN that the White House and State Department were "cautiously optimistic" about the proposal.

"The U.S. believes it's a strong draft," the official said.

http://apnews.myway.com//article/20070213/D8N8R6G80.html>Already before its adoption, the deal drew strong criticism from John Bolton, former U.S. ambassador to the U.N., who urged President Bush to reject it.

"I am very disturbed by this deal," Bolton told CNN. "It sends exactly the wrong signal to would-be proliferators around the world: 'If we hold out long enough, wear down the State Department negotiators, eventually you get rewarded,' in this case with massive shipments of heavy fuel oil for doing only partially what needs to be done."

Deal or no deal?

Whad'a suprise. The media is looking for a story that goes up the flagpole, and distracts people's attention.

Meanwhile, so many people on the east coast are stuck at home. Given the SIZE of the snow banks, now double the height of any six foot guy. You wouldn't even see the top of IMUS' cowboy hat in this weather.

But, then again? People at home because they can't get to work due to weather conditons, probably means some more folk are on the Internet than ever before.

No.Ko. Who knew that they'd "deliver" a media surprise that means almost nothing. But let's the diplomatic pants dancers,tap up a storm.

Meanwhile? Beirut just saw an bus bombing. Two buses. Lots of injuries. I guess those monsters, not being able to get into Israel, are turning their "raw power" onto the heads of the Lebanese? Ya want news? Check Drudge.

Actually check InstaPundit. He's got lots of links up covering what the media, itself, refuses to "megaphone."

Legacy!

At least Bill Clinton can blame Jimmy Carter.

But really, it's all about what China wants. Bush has zero leveraage with China, the banker for his spending spree.
