George W. Bush is obsessed with his "legacy." Wildly unpopular in the present, he hopes for some respect in the future, despite the many obvious failures of his administration.
Now, with less than 14 months to go in his second term as President, Bush has a new goal: Peace in the Mideast.
No, not Iraq. He's already given up on that one. The Israeli-Palestinian part of the Mideast.
What else are we to make of the Arab-Israeli conference in Annapolis?
Down a lot of points, and deep in his own territory, Bush is going to throw a long one and hope it gets caught by someone.
