Before and during the Unity Gov., I'm sure Haniys and Meshall told Abbas what was accepteble to them. Abbas also has to make a judgement as to what the voting populace wants and will accept and what Hamas and PIJ and PFLP and the rest of the alphabet soup will buy into. Hamas has said they don't want a seat at the table and that Abbas should do the negotiating, anyway. It all comes down to what can be ratified. The same is true of Olmert. He's less popular than Abbas or Bush. He has to take into account what he can sell to the Israeli public in the face of the settlers and Bibi. Both have serious handicaps and both have violent rejectionists to deal with.
