Linda Cropp: Miracle Worker

She's still trying to squeeze blood from a stone. But she's up against the best blood-from-stone squeezer there is, Bud Selig.

She honestly thinks that she can get Selig to reopen the stadium neogtiation that DC and MLB both signed off on. Good luck, Linda. Why don't you pick up a Powerball ticket on your way home from the office too?
Cropp is seeking several alterations to the relocation pact — seen previously by many as an ironclad document — including greater legal protection for the city if construction on the stadium falls behind schedule through no fault of the District's and more community benefits from the Washington Nationals.

MLB commissioner Bud Selig last week said repeatedly, "The deal we made is a deal." But at the same time, he directed his staff to meet with District officials and discuss potential changes to the contract....

"A deal, yes, is a deal. But where there is room to clarify the agreement, amplify elements of it, I think we want to do that," Williams said yesterday. "I do not believe those ideas are mutually exclusive."
