The President's Amendment

Interesting detail from this Politico story shows how closely President Obama was involved in Corker-Hoeven negotiations:
But at the height of the talks [about the amendment on] Tuesday, the president weighed in with Schumer from Air Force One while traveling through Europe.

Over a shaky line — they had to be reconnected twice — Obama told Schumer that the 90 percent trigger was unacceptable. Schumer said they were trying to find a different benchmark, and Obama told him to keep working toward an agreement.
