Shimon Peres, who partnered with Yitzhak Rabin, in the disastrous Oslo process, now wants to revive his act (and his career) by partnering with Ariel Sharon in the latest attempt to make peace with the Palestinians.

It’s doubtful, though, that Sharon has lost enough of his edge to take seriously anything of substance that Peres tries to pitch.
