    We can no longer find a middle point toward which to try to pull the parties. I thought the road map had such a position outlined, save for some details to resolve. Now Israel shows it has no interest whatsoever in the green line give or take some small mutually-agreeable swaps, and for some reason Obama is siding with Israel against the road map in this non-paper. I hope these anonymous sources are anonymous spinners, and the current negotiating outlook isn't really this bad, but there sure hasn't been much news of positive progress lately.
