How Would You End This Paragraph?

It's a quiz! Here's a paragraph from today's Washington Post article about John Kerry the "manager:"

Kerry has a history of drilling into small matters, as well. In 1996, when he and his Republican opponent for U.S. Senate, then-Massachusetts Gov. William F. Weld, agreed to limit spending on advertising, and lawyers presented them with a draft agreement, "Weld decided to sign in an hour," said Chris Gregory, Kerry's political director at the time. "Two weeks later, Kerry is still finding problems: 'This word is wrong. They dropped a comma. We can't sign this.' " Ultimately, he signed. He also won the election.

So the question is this: Do you end it as the Post did ("He also won the election.")? Or do you end it: "Within a month, he broke the deal."

You make the call!
