...."political death" in mind, I understand that health care and jobs clearly have priority for the American people. I rather meant his international "political death", because this is indeed an important test for him. Many of his Western allies (especially in Europe) have already certain doubts with regard to his steadfastness and leadership qualities. The current crisis with Israel was really big news here in Europe, so if he is going to back down now, he will indeed be seen as a very weak leader, and the U.S. will be seen as a country that you can push around at will.... He simply can't afford that, or he and his administration are toast, at least when it comes to foreign policy. Kind regards....
