    Arrow a long run in the park

    "We would want to be convinced that the deal (Indo-US nuclear pact) does not involve a surrender of our sovereignty. We can even see the logic in the demand from the Left and the BJP that such a major foreign policy discussion needs national debate. But once we are persuaded that we won't play the poodle to Washington's bull terrier, we would be more than willing for a long run in the park. Anto-americanism then will be thrown to the wolves." What is the meaning of " a long run in the park"? if I am not wrong, it is exaggeration of "walking an extra mile".
