For John, BLUF: Ideas do matter and sometimes trump party affiliation. Nothing to see here; just move along.
The headline at Drudge is "SNEAK:  REPUBLICANS PLAN NEW OBAMATRADE PUSH". OK, I admit it is Breitbart and that the author is Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), but there it is, Republicans and Democrats cooperating. Not that I think the President will express much gratitude over the long run, but there it is, gridlock broken between Republicans and Democrats, but a certain degree of gridlock within the Democrat Party. For example, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) voted against the President.
Because of the fact that the Republican Leadership is trying to work with the President, there will be another try at passing the Trade Authority. Which brings us back to Senator Sessions, who writes:
Americans do not want this, did not ask for it, and are pleading from their hearts for their lawmakers to stop it.Think about it. Senator E Warren and Senator Jeff Sessions on the same track.
