Infinitely more important than inauguration 

If this is true, this would actually be good news.

I have been disgusted with Obama since I heard that Dennis Ross would be his Middle East point man.

Now the Times is saying it could be George Mitchell. If so, my sense of Obama would change quite a bit. If he appoints Ross, he is committing himself to sophistry and gimmickry and salesmanship. If he appoints Mitchell, there is at least the possibility for conservative, functional leadership.

Now Mitchell won't solve anything. But at least he won't be aiding and abetting Israeli crimes while believing himself to be serving humanity.

Ross and Indyk are longtime employees of the state of Israel. Mitchell is independent, of Arab and Irish ancestry, and is not on record as being committed to ethnic cleansing as policy.
