"... Finally, in 2007, after Hamas had usurped power in Gaza, it was clear to all that there was no alternative to President Bush’s vision of a state of Palestine and a state of Israel living side by side in peace and security ..."

- Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, speaking at the United Nations Security Council on December 16th. Apparently reporting on what has transpired over the last eight years in an alternative universe, Rice explained how President Bush came to office with the peace process at its nadir; how the fighting parties finally realized the wisdom of President Bush's vision of peace; and how the President built on this realization by initiating the Annapolis process, which will result in "... two independent and democratic states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and security ..."

Break out the Nobel peace prizes...
