Obama is weak, and does not stand the rough and tumble life of politics. He folds at the slightest opposition, delegates to dysfunctioning subordinates fails to moderate their deliberations or control their bickering, and he ends up picking the lowest common denominator. Besides time is short. Four years cut in half by the mid-term. And who can count on Netanyahu cooperating? He stretch the talks and creates side issues, and if push comes to shove he can contrive a cabinet crisis and let it drag until Obama is a lame duck. Alas. Obama will be remembered as the first black president and the first president to publicly accept same-sex marriage. Even Obama care, for what it is worth, was not his making. He will not add to this legacy even if he is given two more terms.
