Paul Martin is NOT an idiot 

CNEWS - Looming vote causes Martin pause before accepting White House invite So why would Paul Martin risk his seats in the west on the (unlikely) reopening of the US border to Canadian beef? And why would Bush risk any electoral votes on this, either?
Bush already got slapped down for his Latino immigration initiative, and it might have actually benefited him inside US borders; he won't risk doing any more favours for neighbours which cannot possibly help him. As for Martin, he's already had his election campaign sabatoged by Chretien's sponsorship scandal; he won't put the American agriculture department in charge of his western agenda.
So I think they won't be meeting anytime soon.
