Bush's visit to Caterpillar yesterday has returned the usually back-burner issue of trade to front sections this morning.  Hill Democratic leaders are asking former top Clinton aides like Gene Sperling and Robert Rubin "to help persuade the freshman class of '06 to moderate the militant critique of globalisation that helped get them elected."
