Quotable Words

The working theory of the White House seems to be to press as hard as possible on as many fronts as possible. A knowledgeable administration insider put it to me well: "I think one thing both Obama and Rahm get is that if the column just keeps rolling, the opposition can't really form."


...even if Obama has produced no positive results internationally, he has been visibly active, whether in trying to apply pressures in "Af-Pak," proposing talks on Iran and the Middle East, taking an unusually firm tone with Israel on the settlement question, or showing an unusual degree of interest in Lebanon...
