If you conduct your politics on the basis of managing everyday life in a reasonable way, you don't go making a military coup which further exacerbates the division in your people as Hamas did. Thus the way forward to one PA with Hamas is Abu-Mazen's way, by acknowledging the mistake and reversing the coup. This is doubtful. What is more likely is the development of two Palestinian authorities in the two regions. A lot is being invested in the American/British sponsorship of a West Bank Palestinian Authority that looks like it can be a peace partner, and it doesn't look like the American role in the world is ending any time soon.
