    President Obama is a listener. He seeks advice from many distinguished diplomats and retired military folk such as Colin Powell, The gracious president has an overladen plateful of undercooked food. Not edible for sure. The oil travesty on the Gulf Coast, violence in Iraq,the rift with Kabul and renewed economic negative results, upcoming elections where the Democrats may well lose both Houses. Lets forget about terrorism and just concentrate on the domestic scene in the US. The president has learn t his first lesson, you cannot please everybody. He has learn t that trust is not a one way street. He also knows that his poll numbers are well below 50 percent. He also has learn t that sinking ships cannot always be saved, for although he is the captain, his motley crew leaves much to be desired. These are not lessons that can be taught to a junior senator, the latter comes from hands on experience. I give Pres.Obama an A for effort. Ambassador Oren, should be far more diplomatic, for the president is coming of age, faster than many believe, the learning curve has finally kicked in. Good day from sweet sunny Swiss Alps.
