Could be.

You never know how much this could be public relations oriented.

If the deal is approved immediately by metro, Karl Dean looks like he caved in his first week in office. Not the precedent an aspiring politician wants to set.

If you make them fight it out, and you make Dean look like he has David Freeman's arm twisted and Freeman crying "uncle", Dean looks like he went to battle for the taxpayers and stood up for them.

Dean has to know that if the Preds leave, no way does he get term #2.
