Sen. Mike Carrell and Rep. Christopher Hurst were seen shaking hands today, after they and Sen. Adam Kline huddled on the Senate floor.

Considering the verbal shots being fired by Hurst at Carrell and Kline last week, are these portentous signs for the success of negotiations over the constitutional amendment on bail?

“I think we’re getting really close,” Carrell said.

A new draft has emerged from the talks between the House, Senate and Gov. Chris Gregoire. Hurst left the huddle with a document to take back to his fellow House members to see if they approved.

Carrell has agreed to the latest draft, which he says combines ideas from all three parties. He said: “Despite all the name calling and stuff, this is as good as it gets.”
