If I recall correctly, the plural in the original Hebrew was more of a royal 'we.'  I'm going by memory mind.

I could also see it as God addressing angels.  That's fairly irrelevant speculation.  Either way, I don't think it's necessary to assume that God is addressing fellow deities.

What I was taught, was when God said "Behold, he is one of us," or somesuch, he was talking about The Father, The Son, and The Holy Ghost. I was taught to believe they were three seperate entities and the same being all at the same time. Doesn't that stike a cord of wonder? When I brought up that Christians worshipped three gods and feared one I got pulled to the back with a nice talking to.

However, there are other instances when God mentions other gods. For instance, Ba'al and the Fire on the Mount story. It was meant to discredit another god. My thoughts on it was, you know what, maybe Ba'al doesn't need to show off to get followers.  Deities don't typically light your fires for you and blow them out. I can't see a deity changing this to show one-upman-ship with another god.
