B-but, he's not George Bush!

Well, who could have possibly seen this coming?

Bristling with impatience, President Barack Obama sternly prodded Israeli and Palestinian leaders to relaunch Mideast peace negotiations Tuesday, grasping a newly personal role in their historic standoff. He won an awkward, stone-faced handshake but no other apparent progress beyond a promise to talk about more talks.
Unfortunately, there happens to be a side in the negotiations that is intractable and wants to drive the other side into the sea. But Obama "won" something, huh? What he "won" was equal to a "Participant" trophy as far as foreigners might be concerned, especially since he's junking our standing in the world, but, hey, a win is a win, huh?
