Stop the Presses! Dean is Wrong!

Howard Dean finds a way to blame the Israel/Lebanon situation on President Bush. So says Dean:

“If you think what’s going on in the Middle East today would be going on if the Democrats were in control, it wouldn’t, because we would have worked day after day after day to make sure we didn’t get where we are today. We would have had the moral authority that Bill Clinton had when he brought together the Northern Irish and the IRA, when he brought together the Israelis and the Palestinians.”

Yes, Bill Clinton brought together the Israelis and the Palestinians… and obviously, that was a rousing success, judging by the current situation. Dean knows good and well (or at least he should) that the Israeli/Palestinian conflict has been raging for decades. Every president since Truman has tried, without success, to work out a solution. Yet if Gore or Kerry currently resided at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, the problem would be fixed? Just how stupid does Dean think we are?
