Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Which is why I say we need a President who knows how to do business with a knife, a la LBJ's famous quote: "The art of politics consists of knowing when to hold a knife to a man's belly and when to stick it in."  We need someone both with principles and with a ruthless determination to do what needs to be done to erase that line in the sand and then some.  

"It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
