Obama indicates he will initiate diplomacy with Hamas:
The incoming Obama administration is prepared to abandon George Bush’s Âdoctrine of isolating Hamas by establishing a channel to the Islamist organisation, sources close to the transition team say.
And why not? Why shouldnâ€™t Obama reach out to a constituency?
Sighâ€¦. Obamaâ€¦ a black Jimmy Carter with Bill Clintonâ€™s glibness. Pity the decades that followâ€¦ those of us who were kids during Carter donâ€™t appreciate cleaning up his messes now. And Iâ€™m sure my kids wonâ€™t enjoy cleaning up after Barryâ€™s naivetÃ© either.
