#1 Why now?
He couldn't do it as President.

#2 Wants him dead, does he.

#3 "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 butter freezing in his mouth.

#4 "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.

Like the historically proven non sequitur "Gaza Truce Negotiator", terms of reference such as "Honest broker" and "Bill Clinton" should never be used in the same sentence.

#5 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.

#6 McCain read Machiavelli? Doubts, serious doubts. He's prolly crazy and right twice a day.

#10  Tell old horny Bill they have binders full of women in Gaza & maybe he could be persuaded to check them out.

#11 Hmmmmmm....how about letting Bibi Netanyahu do the negotiating?

#12 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.

#13 What makes you think we want a salesman, Pappy?

I want this finished. For good. And Bibi seems to be doing the job so far. Drive the Paleos back into Egypt from whence they came.

(Egypt hasn't taken Gaza back in all these years for a reason. They need to change their minds.)

#14 It could have been much, much worse. He could have suggested Jimmy Carter.

Reality check - it isn't going to get "finished. For good". Not this time around.

At this point the best that be hoped for is to keep punching back and wait for the quantum of solace to run out.

#16 I believe the phrase "mowing the grass" applies here. Although, sometimes you want to trim the weeds waaay back.

#17 This is a classic example of setting the Dems up for failure! The Dems send their fair haired leader, it fails, the Dem machine has a classic Fail for 2016...
