Let's pretend!

Not one of these three men is in a position to make a peace deal for Israel and Palestine.

Duhbya is about as popular as a bullshit sandwich and has less political capital. Olmert feels the hot breath of the law on his neck. Abbas is even worse off - he feels the hot breath of Hamas on his neck.

But Ed Henry of CNN is happy to lend them an air of breathless urgency.

Duhbya is looking for his legacy, but half of it got married a few days ago. Politically, there's nothing he can do.

This is hopeless window dressing.
