"Around that it was right around that in two thousand sixteen coming off their obviously their long mini dynasty. There of the early twenty tens. And it's been you know in that range kind of ranging between twenty two and twenty eight percent Depending on what you consider making the playoffs is we have you know. Playoff contention starts at seven wins and goes to obviously eleven wins and the super bowl contenders. Twelve or more wins. So i mean if you wanna break it down. The bengals are by our numbers that we played the season now one million times in a projection system and then plug in the numbers. And when we do that the bengals win between six and eight games. Forty one percent of the time right and they're nine to eleven wins roughly the same as their zero to five range. So when you say it's a twenty seven percent chance of making the playoffs and yeah. That sounds pretty good. Unfortunately they have about the same matter. Chance of being in contention for the first overall pick in the draft again so you know basically. It's a volume of numbers and the overall volume says that the bengals most likely this year will be kind of mediocre more in the six to eight six two nine six to ten in range and of course you remember. There's a seventeen game this year. Which throws everybody everybody's thinking of You know the optimistic fan and certainly we can number ourselves especially that time of year. Well look at it and say yeah you know they. They should be wild card contention in the numbers. Bear that out on the other hand you can look at it at the same to sit the very same numbers and say well. You know if injuries happened. Not just a job rural but just any kind of a cluster position group or anything like that. That usually happens around the nfl level. You know they could easily wind up being out of the out of the race by kober again. So it all depends on how you look at it and also taking the sort of overall big picture projection system kind of as a range rather than you know making exact predictions the gentlemen. I've had mike on this show before my tenure was not a fan of the bengals taking jomar chase instead of soul and you were a part of the almost the nationwide conversation about teams so versus team chase. I'm very willing to admit. I was team chased. Then i'm teen chase now. Do you share the opinion that mike has in the piece that not only should the bengals have taken a soul but that bypassing him was a colossal mistake..

It's obviously a large company with money to put behind professional developers and stuff in you click on it and it takes four seconds for every page load. It's just like how is it possible that you're building the software with so much. This is the face of your business is sometimes they decide to fix it with front frameworks. So then you get like a quick splash of like a box with owi and then it says loading for four seconds which to me feels no better. So i don't know. I i feel like building scalable.

New Sanders/Jayapal bill: the Healthcare Emergency Guarantee Act
"The the next biggest thing obviously in healthcare is going to be this phase. Four relief bill which they're calling the cares to act which is likely to start moving through congress in the next week or two and the big question for us at least is. Is there going to be any healthcare relief for the millions and millions of people who are losing their jobs and losing their health insurance coverage right in the middle of massive healthcare crisis and there are now three bills that Democrats have different? Democrats have proposed in the house side And there's one on the Senate side It's not entirely clear whether anything will go through the Senate at all democratic leadership on the Senate side has not really made much noise about this But let's let's go back to the we've already talked about two of the house bills. We talked about A bill that Senator Sanders and reptile Paul are going to introduced. Actually not yet filed. This is called the Healthcare Emergency Guarantee Act. But what it really is it would cover everyone with Medicare It would have no co no deductibles and even if you have private or public insurance already than this bill would Medicare would cover all of your co pays and deductibles so basically it would achieve all of the access goals of a Medicare for all system. It would just temporarily believing in the private insurers and kind of providing wraparound and then but it is the like it is the Medicare Gateway Bill. Oh no doubt no doubt. Yeah I think so. We're going to be getting behind this bill. Most of the Medicare for movement is going to be supporting this bill. I think our feeling is that you know if you can get the experience of Medicare for all even if you don't get all the financing and limiting the health insurance company that it'll create real momentum to just do the full thing and because really leaving the health insurance companies in there. It just makes it much more expensive to do. It's hard to afford universal health. Care if you don't kick them out And you have to deal with them continuing to deny coverage and using the system just for their own profits so the other two bills. We already talked about this shitty bill that a democratic leadership is pushing the well the Worker Health Coverage Protection Act And this would obviously be good for some folks it expand. It basically subsidizes Cobra. So this is if you happen to have good health insurance in the job that you left. Then it would subsidize you staying on your previous employer's plan but a lot of people would not qualify for that Especially you know if you work at a small business. This is only Kober only works if you were working at a place that has twenty or more employees and it only works if your health. Your previous employer still exists and if their their health plan still exists. It doesn't work if your previous employer just went under or if they closed down their healthcare plan and obviously for many people who didn't have health care coverage previously. It would do nothing so just to give some numbers to illustrate the differences between these two bills the giant Paul Sanders Bill. The Healthcare Emergency Guarantee. Act THAT BILL WOULD COVER EVERYBODY. Who's currently uninsured? And that number is between thirty and forty million and rising as people are kicked off their their jobs and then kicked off their health insurance and then of course it would also because it would provide that wrap around coverage Basically it would basically affect everybody in the United States hundred plus million three hundred million whereas the Cobra Bell the Cobra for some ish. Bill that Nancy Pelosi is pushing would cover at most four to five million people so the scope is really different. Yeah I hadn't even seen that projection but that is shockingly inadequate for sort of what's facing us and we now have a third bill if you weren't confused already this is This is a bill introduced this past week by Reps. Chhaya Paul and Reps Kennedy who are both Medicare for all supporters in called the Medicare Crisis Program Act? We we might need to rename all these bills down and their bill would Instead of I mean the other thing about the bill is that it's just throwing public tax dollars at private health insurance companies but this plan that Kennedy introducing would expand Medicare extend Medicare to the recently unemployed so basically people who have become unemployed due to You know in the period of Corona virus would be allow- allowed to enroll in the Medicare program But the thing that makes this it's not nearly as good as the sanders giant. Paul Bill Because it leaves all of almost all of the cost sharing and copays and deductibles Under Medicare would still be there They did eliminate some like the premiums that you have to pay but you'd still have A part A. Part B. deductibles. You'd still have to buy a drug plan if you want to have any drug coverage you'd have the donut hole all that all those limitations that Medicare unfortunately comes with And then if you did not become recently unemployed then you also wouldn't qualify for the program So in my opinion it's it's better than the Cobra Bill. it would cover more people But it's still. I think totally inadequate for what's needed in this crisis and it makes kind of arbitrary distinctions about who gets in and who doesn't so I don't know our current system Yeah but yeah it would be better. It's like a gateway light right so we have like the the sanders dry. Paul Act which is like improved Medicare for all ish improved Medicare for all gateway drug. We have this the Reps Scott. Dingle Pelosi Bill which is like Cobra for some ish like you should have been a Republican bill right. They may be actually and I mean this. This is what I thought. The Republicans were going to push would be like. Let's subsidize private insurance but it turns out. There's been some like trading places going on over the decades so and then we have this new job. Kennedy Bill Medicare for the recently unemployed. So now we've got these three bills but none of it is really important. The distinctions between the bills. If nobody's actually going to fight for any of these bills and Pelosi for example they introduce this bill but she hasn't really been talking that much about it. I'm not sure if there's been a lot of discussion about whether it's actually going to be in the next phase of relief and and I think that there's a reason that the Democrats haven't really tackled the UN insurance problem. Which is there's no good solution for them. I mean insurers want them to expand Cobra which would be massively expensive and then as we were talking about cover only a fraction of the newly insured newly uninsured. The other option is of course you either expand private or public insurance and so the other option is to temporarily expand public insurance which would cover more people and of course be far less expensive but would also piss off the industry. Not only because they aren't going to be receiving those subsidies Cobra but because it would just be difficult to claw back you know expansion of public insurance and it would also demonstrate a way for us to transition away from employer based insurance so democratic leaders are just Kinda stuck between these two forces I think and I think that maybe they're just hoping that all these people who had insurance these are the ones they sort of have to worry about the the people that they think make up their base they. They hope that maybe they'll get their jobs back soon. And then they won't have to deal with this whole problem.

Trump rule could lead to big Medicaid cuts, governors warn
"Tell folks what has happened in terms of Medicaid in particular. I guess let's start way the way you did. What are the proposed cuts to Medicare that the trump administration the station has been talking about the proposed cuts to Medicare You know I think it started with their rollout of increased privatization of Medicare with increasing Medicare advantage. uh-huh Plans Kober last year in the lakes and Florida Trump you know reported in Vanity Fair that he said it would be fun. Second Term Project to cut Medicare and then in a couple of weeks ago now in Davos Switzerland he was talking. NCNB CNBC and he said Yesterday the fact that would be on the table cutting cutting Medicare in those social security and he said that would be the easiest thing to do very strange choice of words. So that's kind of the Medicare and that's what I started with. That's why I was in Des Moines that day with the committee to protect Medicare talking about these possible Medicare cuts with you know doctors from Iowa that join me for a press conference One Press When one member of the press showed up at that press conference now you know a little bit more of the presses is listening to the line that we're calling out at my committee about these proposed cuts it's And then you know because of the news of the day. Last Thursday was Davis encounter occurred in that was the day that Seema Verma the cms administrator for trump mm rolled out these Block grant Waiver proposal. That you know everyone I can see. That is talking about this. In an honest this way tells us this will cut folks from Medicaid. Okay and so tell us. CMS The centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services when they roll out this proposal are they actually just basically introducing. They're they're basically announcing that you can you as a state Can apply for a waiver. Is that right right. Apply for a waiver. Currently Medicaid is funded by the federal government on a kind of a per person per need basis. So you know. For instance when there's a recession and more people lose jobs and more people qualify for Medicaid. The federal share of spending on healthcare for those folks will go up because of course they need that you know people with diabetes if they have a job or they lose their jobs to no fault of their own still. Have they still need three hundred dollars a month insulin slim so with block grant States could say listen Why don't you just give us a lump sum of money? And then let us in the where he used was innovate let us innovate. Ah figure out how to cover anyone cover everyone but you know if the needs go up in our state. We still get that that pot of money that you're giving us it doesn't change and yet our needs go up so more people lose out the other thing they can do is choose to cut certain services they can you know cut certain drugs that are that are. Currently they covered up a prescription drug benefit under Medicaid. So I mean I mean it is just cut. There's no way around it. And there's no way that pence didn't understand that Seema. Burma used to be his Medicaid Administrator in the state of Indiana when he was governor there so this has been a conservative dream for for ages decades thirty years. They've been trying Graham. They've been trying to block grant and and so. There's there's like you say there's multiple problems that come with the block. Granting one is that it does not act as that economic stabiliser in other words doesn't doesn't Basically expand as the the need gets greater in crises. It also does not a increase along with the cost of medicine and And like you say the states can get sort of clever because the federal government has basically said I mean this is the difference between just sort of you know me me giving ten bucks to my kid and saying you know do whatever you want with it as opposed to making sure that she spends it on you know not on on junk food or whatever it is and and she can then go out and basically spend five bucks on the. I want to keep this metaphor too much but the idea is that they can use this money in other ways that I really don't have anything to do with providing health insurance for people right and my governor is Governor Gretchen. Whitmer who gave you know. I thought an amazing response to the state of the Union last night and I was there and we talked beforehand. And she's she helped. Uh sure in expanded Medicaid under the affordable care act when she was the minority leader of the State Senate here in Michigan and got a Republican governor to expand Medicaid. And we've had you know. Nearly three three quarters of million folks in Michigan Benefit from that Their study I think Carter. Kaiser family reported recently specifically Michigan showing the economic economic benefits of expanded Medicaid. The fear was that the federal government was going to give them a hundred percent in the first year and then scaled back to I think ninety percent of eventually by next year and the reality is even though the federal share has scaled back because people are healthier because they can afford treating their chronic illnesses. They can work more they. The actual tax base has increased. I think thirty thousand jobs in Michigan created directly resulted expanded Medicaid. So I you know this is. It just doesn't make sense to me that they try and and I think that's why he dodged the question and tried to revert back to things he did. And and then eventually just said agree to disagree because He knows what it is they. They held him what it is and they know if they say what it is. People won't like it you know. It's an election year. They're trying to get reelected so they just say whatever they want they lie will and state of the Union almost solely healthcare allies again about every other aspect of healthcare. And you know I think they just say what they want they get away with it. He just wasn't expecting to meet up with a guy in tyner who you know. I mean again. I don't know this issue like a policy. Wonk I mean I just I have a biology degree in a medical degree and I work clinically as a doc but I read you know and I and I try to learn as much as I can and so you know with my limited understanding of these policies he just. He wasn't ready for that one briefed them known gave them talking points. And I think that's. That's that's what we saw unfold. Yeah he did look like a deer in the headlights and we did try to dance around it quite a bit. You were pretty easy. Road brought in on them pretty quickly I think as he tried to sort of pretend like he didn't understand what you said the first thing. It just didn't that first exchange where you said. You're going to get cuts and Medicaid. 'cause I don't think we're GONNA do cuts in Medicare and so we'll give us. I mean So you know firsthand. The implications of this expanded Medicaid and and and I WANNA get into that as just your experiences as as an emergency doctor but I also get the sense. You're on this You're you're you're you're executive director of this committee you're in Iowa so you're aware at at least some of the you know the broader politics involved in this. Where would you anticipate what states or at least you know if not specific ones than the profile of the states eight? That are going to be applying for this waiver. I mean presumably the thirteen states. Now that did not expand Medicaid under the affordable. Care Act. I would imagine would be a prime targets or prime applicants to get this waiver. Because they're going to continue you. Say we're going to expand medicaid. They certainly are interested in dismantling it as much as they can right. I think that and I think you know anywhere that there is a Republican And I guess I have to. I don't know the nuances of the directive if it's if it's an executive decision at the state level or if it requires you know something passing through their houses so we have enough house majority Republican state legislatures plus governorships. In this country that I I mean I think that would be the profile. You know certainly because those will be the places where you know folks are more likely to be in charge that share vice president pence views on you know on Medicaid in general in a and and whether or not we should be helping out poor people when it comes to healthcare That that is that's the fear now. And why should we in Michigan you you know. Why should we in Michigan? Have a different set of. I mean the whole healthcare system. So Patchwork in Hodgepodge if you WANNA call it a system a series of systems. But it's so patrick work anyways I mean I guess why should this be any different. Let's let certain states do one thing and others do the other. And if you just happen to be born in Michigan versus Alabama. Well you know good on you right Well there's so much in our society today that's determined that way it's all just a coin toss and met. I guess maybe a bunch of coins get tossed in the air. What now? There's a vote tomorrow in the house. I Don I imagine you're familiar with it. And what the what the vote is is it's under the The CRA which has been used in the past to see the Congressional Review Act. It's been used in the past undo executive the actions that have been done within a certain timeframe and the Republicans did this with a bunch of executive actions by Obama and then once they do that once they pass that to reinstitute any type of rule like that Congress has to has to authorize it with a two thirds vote right so this is like this is a this is a real this is a sledgehammer as it were and they're going to. They're going to vote on this in the house and they will probably pass yes it which would not allow the president to block grant but then it goes to the Senate and the Republicans are sure to shoot it down. How do you think this plays as has a An issue in the fall when you have a half dozen or so Republican senators running in sort of purple states on their refuse their essential like voting to allow for cuts and Medicaid right. Yeah and I and I kind of anxious to see what folks looks like Like Collins I mean she seems the only one in the purple state that I think might make along with this I think you know tell us and and MC sally the and who is a gardener I think is already toast You know maybe Joni Ernst I don't know Yeah I mean I think at least I mean the thing is having having gone record. I mean that's That's I think that's all that's what we're trying to do as a committee. I mean what we're what we're rolling out over. The next. Several months is is an accountability campaign.
GT500 vs. The World
"We're going to start off this week with an article about the thirty five hundred and I want to throw it over to use Smith because you've been writing about the GT five hundred a lot for us. So what's the news. It all boils down to something that originated really way back in two thousand three two thousand four with ESPN Cobra it's comparisons with with the GP five hundred against cars that you normally expect and There's Jason Committee that did A really outstanding video where he drove the GT five five hundred against The hell cat which okay. That's that's a pretty apples to apples comparison but then they took it on to a track with the Ferrari twelve super fast and end. And this one. This is the one that got me the most the Porsche nine eleven. Gt Three IRS And to give a little background Jason Camellias a friend of the site. He's written frost or or he's A. He's a veteran and he makes great video. This is amazing video just a production quality as well as the fact he got these. This trio of of really supercars to bring together to go against the GT five hundred so tell us tell us how did against each one at absolutely. Yeah if you haven't seen the video We've got the the article article motor wound with a link to his video I mean in short the GT five hundred is punching way above its weight class. I above way above At well we we should. We should clarify that way. Above in terms of handling because the GT five hundred never had a problem going fast in a straight line And and for this comparison it beats the hell cat. Okay which it handily beat thou cat like by on links it handily beating. Yeah well and and Jason points out in the video you know when you're not at a prep drag strip service which really the hell cat and especially the demon. Those cars are designed to launch hard from prepped drag strip surface in the real world. It's a little different and that video really showcases that and they did did they did it in the video on an airstrip. That wasn't a service. I think I think the demon drives dragster would win. Yes I oh yeah I I still think it would wind and Pretty easily just the way. That car launches. I mean it's it. Set Up to launch out of the whole Just having the horsepower is neat but that car is is really set up to launch the. Gt five hundred though is set up to accelerate pretty hard and handle and with bet carbon-fiber track back package that makes all the difference in the world I kind of glossed over the Ferrari. They did line up the GT. Five hundred with the eight twelve super fast doesn't quite the hang with for the Ferrari the Ferrari was was able to lodge a little bit better and the Ferrari held the lead over the GD five hundred but the Porsche folks were talking hit about nine eleven. Gt Three RS on a track driven by a professional racing driver. The Times where I think less than two hence of a second apart. That's gene five hundred verses one of the best handling production cars in the world right now it was. It was a virtual tie. I mean gene. Kelly was they if they had done two more laps than I'm I'm sure they did. They could have eked out a scenario where the five hundred would have been ahead now. Does that mean the GT. Five hundred is just absolutely carving the heck out of corners. It's it's doing pretty well but I mean let's be honest. Gt five hundred has tremendous horsepower. Advantage manage over over the poorest the GTS and what you're seeing is the GT five hundred really taking the portion. The straights the poorest coming back back to the GT five hundred in the corners but the GT. Five hundred still has enough in the coroner's to balance it out over the track and that's something that we've we've never seen from Mustang before it's crazy but we also we also wrote about another head to head matchup between the five hundred and the corvette tell us about that and and you know I remember this one and I even talk about it in the article a little bit back when the sat kober about three or four. That's that was kind of the first time where people people said. Wow can this Mustang actually hang with a corvette of course back then Chevrolet a drop. The camaro there really wasn't anything else to match the Mustang up against and and back then it was. Sat Cobra Against Corvette zero six apples to apples. That was the ultimate evolution of both models. Right there this This this comparison. It's the new. Gt five hundred with the carbon fiber tract package against the currency eight corvette which is of course we. We know the stingray. It's the entry level corvettes ourselves the basis. That really apples is not really apples to apples. But according to motor trend with that track pack Jack the Mustang the five hundred quicker around track. They didn't say how much they didn't list any time. So you have anything to go on there but you know you talking about a mid engine supercar really now against a school for an engine car. Yeah it was strange that they were so vague about the specifics. In you know definitely the the lap times of the GT five hundred versus the corvette but any other details. They left out so I I don't know why they do that. Maybe they're saving saving for a video or or one of their TV shows but and it is an apples to apples. You're right this is the fastest Mustang versus the slowest corvette. And we'RE GONNA be getting corvettes that that I'm sure we'll eclipse. Gt five hundred at some point. And I gotta say I mean I think everybody knows I'm kind of a Mustang Fan but I'm a performance fan too. I took a little exception to that. A psycho cades AIDS. This isn't really an apples to apples. Comparison I WANNA see now. What zero six? The new zero six will do against the five hundred that I don't. I don't think that's going going to be a comparison at all. That's I mean just listening to that thing with the you know in the eight are seen the are yeah. That's I can't wait for

But the gap is, narrowing AP. Correspondent Ben Thomas reports the American Cancer Society says cancer deaths have dropped for all Americans, but the rates have fallen faster for black people than white thirty years ago. Black men had a forty seven percent higher cancer death rate than white men. That's now shrunk to nineteen percent. Meanwhile, black women have a cancer death rate. Just thirteen percent greater than white women. Experts say the main reason is that smoking rates have fallen more dramatically among black people over the past forty years that's paying off in fewer deaths.

"I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm Rachel Martin today. The people who could end the US trade war with China getting a room together. President Donald Trump is expected to meet with China's vice premier this is the highest level negotiations since the start of December. But there's a fast approaching deadline here in March. The Trump administration is set to further increase tariffs on two hundred billion dollars worth of Chinese goods economies in both countries have been impacted by the trade war. So what kind of affect would yet another escalation have on businesses? Arthur Kober advises fortune five hundred companies on trade. He is the head of research for Gav. Cal dragon Nomex financial services firm based in Hong Kong, and he joins us this morning from our studios in New York. Thanks for being with us. Good morning. Glad to be here. Do you think these talks can avert the Trump administration's next of tariffs? Well, not to talks that are going on. Today. It's very complicated set of negotiations. And I think it's probably gonna go right down to the wire at the end of February beginning of March why because the US is asking not only for moves by China to reduce the trade deficit, but for also for deep structural reforms in the economy to change its mechanisms industrial policy and technology policies in these are things that the Chinese are terribly interested in doing do you think though that ultimately that's the right position for the administration to take if it wants to actually stop the intellectual property theft of China, and that it needs to demand these larger structural changes or just a band aid solution? No, I think it makes sense the US companies and not just US companies, but companies from all over the world had had serious problems with Chinese industrial policies and tech transfer policies for a long time and various other regulations that make it difficult to do business in China. So. I think it's perfectly reasonable for the US to apply a lot of pressure. But the issues are so complicated. I don't think it's terribly realistic to think that you'll get a full deal solving all these problems in a matter of weeks. What is the US willing to concede in order to get those big structural changes to China's economy? Well, that's a really interesting question. I think from if you look at this from the Chinese standpoint they're concerned because the US has put very high tariffs on a large number of Chinese goods and is threatening to put more on at a time. That Chinese economy is slowing. So from their standpoint, they need a deal under which these tariffs will be removed or rolled back either immediately or in a fairly short period of time. But from the US perspective, the tariffs are really what brought China to the table there the leverage. So from their standpoint, this is something that I think would be very difficult to concede. And I think that's one of the big sticking points. As I noted. It is your business to advise corporations about how to navigate this moment when it comes to the the trade war between the US and China. What are you saying right now? Well, we're saying that it's all very confusing and complicated. Yeah. The problem is that there are deep structural problems. That will take a long time to resolve.

"I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm Rachel Martin today. The people who could end the US trade war with China getting a room together. President Donald Trump is expected to meet with China's vice premier this is the highest level negotiations since the start of December. But there's a fast approaching deadline here in March. The Trump administration is set to further increase tariffs on two hundred billion dollars worth of Chinese goods economies in both countries have been impacted by the trade war. So what kind of effect would yet another escalation have on businesses? Arthur Kober advises fortune five hundred companies on trade. He is the head of research for Gav. Cal dragon Nomex a financial services firm based in Hong Kong, and he joins us this morning from our studios in New York. Thanks for being with us. Good morning. Glad to be here. Do you think these talks can avert the Trump administration's next stage of tariffs? Well, not the talks that are going on today. It's a very complicated set of negotiations. And I think it's probably going to go right down to the wire at the end of February beginning of March why? Because the US is asking not only for moves by China to reduce the trade deficit, but for also for deep structural reforms economy to change its mechanisms of industrial policy and technology policies, and these are things that the Chinese are terribly interested in doing do, you think that ultimately that's the right position for the administration to take if it wants to actually stop the intellectual property theft of China, and that it needs to demand these larger structural changes or just a band aid solution? No, I think it makes sense the US companies and not just US companies, but companies from all over the world have had serious problems with Chinese industrial policies and tech transfer policies for a long time and various other regulations that make it difficult to do business in China. So I think it's perfectly reasonable for the US to apply a lot of pressure. But the issues are so complicated. I don't think it's terribly realistic to think that you'll get a full deal solving all of these problems in a matter of weeks. What is the US willing to concede in order to get those big structural changes to China's economy? Well, that's a really interesting question. I think from if you look at this from the Chinese standpoint. They're concerned because the US has put very high tariffs on a large number of Chinese goods and is threatening to put more on at a time. That Chinese economy is slowing. So from their standpoint, they need a deal under which these tariffs will be removed or rolled back either immediately or in a fairly short period of time. But from the US perspective, the tariffs are really what brought China to the table. There's a leverage. So from their standpoint, this is something that I think would be very difficult to concede. And I think that's one of the big sticking points. As I noted it is your business to advise corporations about how to navigate this moment when it comes to the the trade war between the US and China. What are you saying right now? Well, we're saying that it's all very confusing and complicated. Yeah. The problem is that they're deep structural problems. That will take a long time to resolve. And you have a President Trump who's a very mercurial volatile character who might press for a deal very quickly for political reasons, but a deal that would not necessarily address all of the underlying concerns.
