Signs of intelligent life

We criticized President Obama during the election for his hostility to trade agreements, particularly the one with Colombia. Now the President seems to be moving away from his protectionist rhetoric as a candidate. Needless to say, this is good news.

The president announced that his team must find a way to pass the agreement. With world trade down 80%, the pact opens new markets to the U.S. He demanded immediate action, asking Colombia's trade minister to fly to Washington this week.
