JERUSALEM -- I arrived in Tel Aviv at 6:30 Sunday evening and went straight from the airport to a charming restaurant in Jaffa to have dinner with Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak, where I asked him to compare George W. Bush's leadership to Obama's when it comes to Israel. "I'm an ABB," he said. "Anyone But Bush. Obama is investing a lot of his political capital in the peace process, and it's important that we don't waste this moment." Wednesday morning I'm meeting with President Shimon Peres. Coming on the heels of yesterday's tripartite meeting between Obama, Netanyahu, and Abbas, we will discuss, among other things, the state of US/Israel relations, Israeli settlements on the West Bank, and Iran's nuclear program. If there is anything you'd like me to ask President Peres, please put your questions in the comments section.
