I think both sides gave some on the issue of retirement age.  I don't see it 
as a big defeat, either, though it is (predictably) being reported that way, 
particularly on the cable news shows.    There is a palpable sense of relief 
all around and, as Lenin said, every struggle is a plus in some sense.
