>> me start with the president's significant trip to the middle east . he's returned. do you think he's erased any doubts about whether he's a stalwart supporter of israel ?
>> no, i think he certainly said that he was and i think people believe that. this is going to go down in history as one of the few trips that an american president has made to israel where there really were deliverables. he got israel and turkey talking to each other and restoring diplomatic relations , and i think that's crucial for the security of that whole area. he's got the palestinians and the israelis thinking long and hard about they're going to have to find some ways to resolve their differenceses no matter how difficult they are. you know, when you get people talking, only good things can come out.
