Barak considers a comeback

The Jerusalem Post reports that former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak is considering making a political comeback in the near future. I think this is good news. Barak was an enormous disappointment the last time around when, under pressure from President Clinton, he was willing to make shocking concessions to Arafat at Camp David. However, Barak states that he has learned from his mistakes and, if the interviews I’ve seen in the past few years are indicative, that seems to be the case. The bottom line is that someone has to be the leader of Israel’s Labor Party. If Barak has learned anything at all, he is plainly preferable to those who have led the party since he left the scene of the crime at the end of 2000.
