No Peace

Perhaps the most disheartening news today is that coming out of Israel, where Tzipi Livni couldn't move the ultra-Orthodox to join a coalition. The end result will be snap elections and (I fear) Netanyahu making a comeback. Not that I thought the Bush administration was going to win a Nobel Peace Prize, but nor did I want the Obama administration to start out with this new stalemate. Interesting that hardliner religious nutballs have taken over right-wing parties in both Israel and the U.S.
