Why Obama should make George W. Bush his Mideast envoy

Via Newsweek by Gregory Levey.
As an envoy, Bush could assuage most of these worries. Many Israelis, especially led by their current right-wing government, would readily trust that policies advanced by Bush had their best interests at heart, and he would not abandon them.
Hey he was also real nice to Riyadh after a handful of Saudis staged 9-11. What's not to love? Could not be worse than Mr Tony.

Incidentally I've heard Levey's book Shut Up, I'm Talking: And Other Diplomacy Lessons I Learned in the Israeli Government is equally hilarious.
