Details of the Deal

The deal that passed Parliament seems, at a glance, to be a good one (Detailed Here). All the electoral reform deals seem like plain common sense to me.

Gotta love Yanukovich calling it a "soft coup d'etat."

Also looks like power is going to be decentralized which, given the Belarusian and Russian examples, also strikes me as a pretty good idea.

Yushenko's promise to prosecute people for political crimes has got to be making a lot of people really nervous right now as well.

But, given the half hour fireworks display that went on last night, I would imagine the opposition (at least) is quite happy.
