    call upon Clinton to help solve his foreign policy problems.  Remember that Bush made fun of Clinton's foreign policy.  That was why I was attempting to name some GOPers that Bush might call upon to assist.

    I thought after I posted Carter's name above that those Middle Eastern folks have very long memories and probably would NOT appreciate his involvement in their problems again, and, of course, Bush would NEVER, EVER call upon Carter, especially since Carter was NOT even allowed to go to the Pope's funeral with the government group and especially since Carter more or less gave the Bush admin. a dressing down at the Coretta Scott King funeral.

    I agree that Baker seems the most likely candidate; nevertheless, I still think the guy always has private interests being negotiated at the same time that he supposedly is working in the interest of the government.  

    I know it seems unAmerican/unpatriotic/etc. of me, but I really, really enjoyed Putin's put down of Bush.

    If Bush had not been such an ass during his entire presidency, then I might not feel that way, but....

    Yeah, Babs has about as much chance at acting prudently as her son does.  Maybe that is why G. H. W. Bush's favorite word seemed to be "prudent" when he was president.  He was used to getting imprudent, smart-assed remarks from his floppy-mouthed wife.

      floppy-mouthed SON, the POTUS!

      Baker is an opportunist, absolutely, but he is simply cashing in like the rest of the Bush family cronies, but he has a great deal of experience in the region so I think he would be brought in.

      However, I question whether Bush actually wants to bring anyone in as he is the Decider, the Crusader, destroyer of the axis of evil, the Cowboy, and not seen as a concilliatory figure at all.  He as so little credibility on the world stage that perhaps this might fall to the British to try and make peace.

      I would have given anything to see a better video of Bush's reaction to the press guffawing at his expense.  I bet that Bush and Putin had a really swell dinner that night.
