In the midst of last Friday’s ongoing Egypt-related news, and the editorializing about a big snowstorm that wasn’t in the Centre of the Universe, and all of the fun pre-Super Bowl hoopla – Prime Minister Stephen Harper and U.S. President Barack Obama got together for a little chit-chat at the White House.
It didn’t get as much coverage as these things usually do.
Harper, I suspect, wasn’t unhappy about that. After all, the subject-matter of his trip Stateside – a border deal that would see Homeland Security being handed private information about Canadians, ostensibly in exchange for easier border-crossings – is one that is fraught with danger for the Conservative leader.
Harper, being a wily politician, knows this.
