    Perhaps my experience will be illustrative. I was a Navy carrier pilot with over 800 carrier landings. There was a long training period, but the first, and every, time I tried, I had to be "good at it". There are other analogous endeavors (not including swimming and bike-riding).

    Similarly, Presidents since Carter have tried to reconcile the principals, without enduring success. Indeed, Carter's signature success is unraveling. Because of US interests, it will never be a non-priority, but in current domestic circumstances it would amaze and astound me if a newly elected President, irrespective of party, would announce his focus of attention was invigorating a moribund Mid-east peace process. And again, for one to explicitly state it would not be is fine with me.
