  • President Bush's Mideast Peace Plan:
    From Jerusalem, President Bush introduced a peace treaty he is hoping to arrange between Israel and Palestine by the end of his term. The plan includes changing borders and paying Palestinians and their families for homes they left in what is now Israel.
    Bush acknowledged, “achieving an agreement will require painful political concessions by both sides.”
  • The Republican Debate on Fox News:
    The Republican candidates took the stage last night, debating in preparation for the upcoming South Carolina and Michigan primaries. Fred Thompson, counting on the South for a win, came alive with a strong performance. He said of the race, “this is a battle for the heart and soul of the Republican party.”
  • Protests Returning to Kenya:
    Kenya’s opposition party said it would resume protests against President Mwai Kibaki’s contentious re-election, after African Union mediation failed to resolve the country’s political crisis. The protests have lead to approximately 500 deaths since the Dec. 27 vote.
    Government Minister Uhuru Kenyatta said of the protests, “dialogue is not engaged in the streets. Dialogue suggests that people resolve their differences peacefully, over a table, not through destroying property and killing innocent Kenyans.”

The interesting thing about Bush and the latest doomed presidential attempt to bring peace to the Middle East is that he's changed his rhetoric. He's finally speaking up for the Palestinian side a bit.

Adrianne, he did do badly in both those primaries, but at this point those primaries can't determine the election anyway. This time around the race is split in such a way that those states aren't going to determine the winner like they normally do. If Thompson bumps back up in the south it just puts him in a tie with all of the top tier.

Bush is only thinking about his legacy, since he doesn't want it to be the Iraq war... good luck with that

Interesting NYT article. I just posted a WSJ Commentary on sugarloving that gives a good overview of the forces at work in the larger region that affect the Israel and Palestinian dilemma. (be careful though, the article says some favorable things about Bush, consider yourself warned in advance.)
