I don't believe in playing favorites in foreign policy; no special treatment for anyone, and no hostility.

This done here, or is there another amendment floating around amongst the cobwebs of your brains?

Why not Indonesia, Argentina, South Africa and Italy? Especially Italy....what did they do wrong except for repeatedly voting for Berlusconi? Tongue

None of those nations has, in my opinion, either a close enough relationship with the US OR enough strategic significance to warrant Most Priority.

I'm still not totally convinced on all of them.

I'll introduce this Amendment:

The following nation shall receive the following status:
Indonesia: Most Priority

Yes, but I've reached my limit.  No more nations get Most Priority.

Is it too late for me to be a co-sponsor, so that we don't slow down without Clarence?

Quote
During this debate time the main sponsor of the legislation may motion to accept the proposed Amendment as a Friendly Amendment. The PPT shall then allow 24 hours for any other Senator to object to accepting the Amendment as a Friendly Amendment. If no other Senator objects then the Amendment shall be ajudged to have been unanimously passed by the Senate and will be automatically incorporated into the Bill. If a Senator objects to accepting the Amendment in this fashion then it shall be voted upon as specified in the rest of this Section.


Damn it, that won't work.

We need Clarence to judge the amendment or him to motion to withdraw the legislation so that Ben can assume sponsorship, pending a 48 hour objection period.

Looks like we're ready for a final vote.  Yankee, can that be arranged?
