I think both sides had gone farther than their original position, or certainly farther than the hawkish sides within would agree to.

I made the point elsewhere that this may be a case where there are more than just two factions, especially on the owners side where that had been reported (no one side has a clear majority). It's like trying to build a coalition government.

Edit: To expand, the things each side needs from the other to close that deal lead away from the compromises or trade-offs needed to get support from the other faction.
