English term or phrase: All’s well that ends well, then? Not by quite a long shot.
El texto trata sobre la aprobacion de la Constitucion Europea

Don’t relax yet
All’s well that ends well, then? Not by quite a long shot. The summit failed in another of its main tasks: choosing the successor to Romano Prodi as the president of the European Commission, a job which is a powerful one in the right hands. France and Germany backed Guy Verhofstadt, Belgium’s prime minister. But while he is liberal-minded in economics, Britain and a few allies opposed him on the ground that he wants to give too many new powers to the EU. Mr Blair resented efforts by France and Germany to push him through anyway, telling them pointedly through a spokesman that Europe’s decisions must be taken by 25 members, not “six or two or one”. An alternative, Britain’s Chris Patten—a conservative and a member of the commission—was rejected by the Franco-German camp.
