There’s been a spate of articles in the San Francisco Chronicle and the Washington Post about an apparent deal between the Governor and the Legislative leaders. The Governor’s press aide is quoted that they are “inches” apart.
Inches? I’ve always said that the plans were more alike than they were different, and that previous obituaries were way premature. I do think there’s a place for agreement. But inches?
It seems there are substantive issues still left to decide. And once those issues are sorted out, there’s the details that make the plan work. Rather than inches, I’d say we’re miles apart, but with a roapmap on how to make the connection. It’s still driving distance: no getting on a plane or a boat, but there’s still some travel time.
