KESTENBAUM: Ned Helm says the amazing thing to him here is that the heads of government just sat down and hammered something out.
Mr. HELM: We were stuck in the mud with the negotiators. They really were stuck in the mud. And we brought in the presidents and they pulled the truck out of the mud, and that's not - normally, this kind of deal, the presidents come in and they bless the offering. They couldn't bless the offering. They had to make the offering here. They had to negotiate.
I mean, it's amazing that this provision, I'm told, President Obama and Premier Wen Jiabao negotiated themselves, the two of them, you know? Can you believe there were - that's what I was told. I don't know if it's an apocryphal story, but that's what we were told.
KESTENBAUM: It's clear from these past two weeks, the countries of the world are still not so good at this global government thing. But maybe we're getting a little better.
