ARAFAT’S DEATH….Will George Bush’s second term be different from his first? Or just more of the same?

I’m part of the “more of the same” camp, myself. Actually, I guess I’m really part of the “even worse” camp, but given Bush’s first term record, that’s sort of a thin difference, isn’t it?

Anyway, it looks like we’re going to get an answer to that question sooner than we thought. The death of Yasser Arafat is certainly a golden opportunity to shift gears and get real about pushing for peace in the Middle East, and if Bush has any intention of demonstrating a new seriousness on this score, now’s the time.

Will he take advantage of it? Or will it be more of the same?
