The skinny on Dennis Ross' aborted liftoff

Philip Weiss of Mondoweiss reports some of the skinny on what's happened to Dennis Ross. Personally, I'm elated if Ross is going to be kept at arm's length by Hillary Clinton at DoS.

I'm also rethinking my earlier elation at George Mitchell's elevation. Although I'm still hopeful that he might be able to move some kind of peace process forward, I'm being reminded that he's more an old war horse than a fresh approach. Compared to the kind of people that George Bush was sending into the fray, Mitchell is surely a big improvement - a breath of fresh air, actually - but I'm not convinced that he - or Obama - is a game-changer.
