Good news from across the pond, everyone. You may think this "listen and lead" thing is a bunch of emptiness, but every day Big Guy is showing us that it can work.
First, he tells the French that the United States is going to be a "partner not a patron" to Europe, which was a huge relief to the AFL-CIO and MoveOn.org back home, because they're counting on Big Guy being a patron.
Then, in a private meeting, Big O got Sarkozy to agree to take one of the "Guantanamo 248." This is a huge step. We expect Germany will take one, too. And Secretary of State Dick Holbrooke and his assistant, Hillary, think they have cut a deal with the Syrians, who will take the rest with no strings attached. Just shows what a little honey can do.
