Is George Bush Engaged in Lame Duck Diplomacy?

Hosted by

The President predicts peace in the Middle East before he leaves office in January of next year. He says it's time for Israel to end 41 years of occupation and allow contiguous boundaries for a Palestinian state. We hear about today's visits to Ramallah and Bethlehem, and look at the prospects for the second part of his Middle East mission, continuing the effort to isolate Iran. The Arab states seem to be losing interest and focusing now on who America's next president might be.
