President Obama is now in Israel for his first trip there as (well) "Commander in Chief." In my ongoing scenario where the Israeli tail wags the American dog, the president has finally come to "heel."
You see in American Kennel Club obedience trials, "heeling" is when a team walks a predetermined pattern with the pooch remaining on the handler's left side and reasonably close and attentive to the handler's every command. Let's watch and see what happens in Jerusalem, and observe who "wags" whom.
It's no secret that President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are wary of each other. The prime minister went so far in an appearance on "Meet The Press" last fall as to all but state his desire that Americans elect Republican Mitt Romney president last November.
