    Netanyahu has been indeed given a signal of dissatisfaction by inviting Livni to Washington. "Not good" in diplomatic jargon, means the meeting with Itzhak Molho was the absolute worst imaginable short of killing each other. Obama has lots on his plate to deal with domestically, and his approval ratings are plummeting. How will a perception of him insisting in unfertile ground affect him? Or will American perception be one of him as persevering amidst adversity? If so, what can be proposed at this juncture, and amidst the Wikileaks storm raging. Perhaps creating a bigger storm leading public opinion away from Wikileaks and Assange's suspicious arrest in London, would come in handy for an adminsitration which has almost entirely failed in Foreign Policy.
