    I hope this process is successful. I'm confident that Sec. Clinton & George Mitchell can broker a deal.

    That Obama administration sure is wonderful. It took them a year and a half to get these clowns to say they would meet every two weeks. Do I smell consecutive Nobel prizes, a Grammy, a Heisman Trophy, the Naismith Trophy and an Emmy for our inept, incompetent, corrupt, union toady president?

    Just like Clinton found out while president .If you push too hard too fast you will drive the parties involved futher apart.Obama is so desperate to make something happen because of his political problems he could make things worse.

  7. Randolph Carter, I'm no expert, but....

    We need to send the Israeli and Palestinian leaders into the Thunderdome. Two men enter, one man leaves! Let's settle this once and for all. Have a nice day!

    Sounds like a good plan. All parties to this process need to communicate and get to know each other better, to get beyond the rhetoric of their respective extreme elements and get to some kind of equitable agreement.

    Best wishes to all involved!
