Bush's Influence in Final Days

This caught my attention: In an article about the Detroit bailout bill being negotiated between the White House and Congress, Bush's influence is discussed. The phrasing is particular.

The White House has outmaneuvered Congress many times, on topics including the war in Iraq and surveillance powers. But this was a rare instance of the speaker backtracking on an issue of significance, something that has happened rarely since she rose to power in 2006.
