    It seems kind of silly to bust into the conference with two days to go.

    Well, most of the world leaders and heads of state are arriving for the last two days. The idea being, the negotiators take care of the nuts and bolts and then the heavy hitters come in to seal the deal. Unfortunately, it appears as though the negotiators weren’t able to pave the way for that to happen.

    The presence of the U.S. Congressional delegation is really just for show. They won’t actually be performing any critical tasks, nor will they be asked to, so I think the lateness of their arrival is pretty inconsequential.
