Slippery slope continues with Baucus Colombia statement

Reuters has the latest on the ongoing slippery slope that some of the Dems have set up by cutting the Deathstar Deal:

A senior U.S. Senate Democrat said on Tuesday he was confident of finding some way to overcome opposition in his own party to approving a free trade agreement with Colombia.

"We are going to find a way to get Colombia passed. It is very important," Senate Finance Committee Max Baucus, a Montana Democrat, told reporters.

Yes, THAT deal. The country with which labor and human groups said there would be NO acceptable deal, now getting the "very important" treatment from the top Senate Democrat on trade. Where does the line get drawn? We're still waiting.
