American politicians are two dimensional non-entities that cater to many masters, one of which is Israeli lobbies and American Jewish influence. Bill Clinton was a horndog that rode a wave of prosperity to success, even though he had a scandal-ridden administration and did everything he could to mes it up. GW Bush is a know nothing that thinks not changing your mind is the same thing as being strong. Don't look to people like this for brilliant statesmanship.
