Hi,

I want to write following question: "Couldn’t it be that we agree?". But i want to insert an "even". Can anyone tell me which position is possible
– couldn’t it be that we [even] agree?
– couldn’t it [even] be that we agree?

Context:
You don’t know much about my perspectives – couldn’t it be that we agree?

    That's better than the first. "Couldn't it turn out that we agree?" and "Couldn't it happen that we agree after all?" have similar meaning and are easier for me to understand. "Even" is intrusive somehow.

    Edit: Missed an "it."
