[An Nahar] Leading Republican Senator John Maverick McCain ... the Senator-for-Life from Arizona, former presidential candidate and even more former foot soldier in the Reagan Revolution... suggested Sunday that President Barack Obama On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes -- and I see many of them in the audience here today... should send Bill Clinton as a special envoy to try to negotiate peace between Israel and Hamas, always the voice of sweet reason,.
"The United States should obviously be as heavily influential as they can," McCain told CBS television, referring to the bloody conflict that has raged since Wednesday between Israel and the Gazoo Strip's Islamist rulers.
The Arizona Republican, who lost his 2008 presidential bid to Obama, sang the praises of Clinton, a Democrat, as someone uniquely placed to try to broker a truce between the sworn enemies.
"I know he'd hate me for saying that but we need a person of enormous prestige and influence to have these parties sit down together as an honest broker," said McCain.
"The United States of America has got to push as hard as we can to resolve this Israeli-Paleostinian issue."

Are all these politicians bat $h*t crazy????????
Is that all that McCain can think up? Send Bill Clinton to be a negotiator? He is either a creative genius or BSC. Bunch of recycled politicians. I am getting a headache.

McCain read Machiavelli? Doubts, serious doubts. He's prolly crazy and right twice a day.
Hmmmmmm....how about letting Bibi Netanyahu do the negotiating?

Mr. Clinton, his reputation here at the Burg notwithstanding, does have three things that Mr. Obama and the rest of his administration lack: prestige (being an ex-president helps), interpersonal skills, and non-insular political experience.
You want a salesman. Saints make crappy negoatiators.
