Obama is right

Here's an example of why we should be talking to foreign leaders:

McClatchy Washington Bureau | 08/11/2007 | Middle East already planning for Bush's departure:

"The Israeli government understands that to have peace with Syria 'means giving back the Golan Heights,' the strategic high ground that Israel seized in 1967, and 'we're willing to discuss it,' [a senior Israeli official] said. But with Bush insisting 'from the Oval Office' that the U.S. won't talk to Syria, nothing can be expected. 'The Syrians really want to talk to the United States,' the official said. "
The article goes on to say that the entire Middle East regards the remaining 17 months of the Bush administration as an ordeal to be endured before anything gets accomplished.
