Thomson Financial News - I was very struck during the ministerial meetings I held (at the World Economic Forum) in Davos...that nobody, actually, pushed back against the argument...that if we do not get a breakthrough and conclude the negotiations this year that they will go nowhere in 2009 with the change of the administration in the United States, and we'll be firmly in the long grass by 2010. I think the presidential will is strong...but we've got to see some final offers from the United States...(that) show more flexibility, and more generosity.
