I've Been Thinking:
Interesting diplomatic face-to-face meetings are under way.
Condi Rice is in the Middle East.
Once again, she is trying to kick start the Palestinians and the Israelis.
The problem here is that the person she is talking to, Palestinian President Abbas, does not have the power to get things going and by law and policy she may not talk to Hamas.
The unfortunate media message following her trip will be an Israel unwilling to move even one inch toward the Palestinians until their kidnapped soldier, Gilad Shalit, is returned. Shalit is being held by Hamas.
Ahmadinejad has arrived in Venezuela for meetings with Hugo Chavez.
They are uniting to try to create an alternative world. They want to shift the world from United States influence towards Iranian and Venezuelan influence.
They have no problem meeting, talking and planning.
The problem will be in making their dream come true.
Hillary is in Iraq. No problem, no big deal. Politics as usual.
