Baghdad hosted a peace conference that included U.N. Security Council members and Iran and Syria. Iran is opposed by America, Great Britain and Germany. The Iranians would have to play a video game to face a more warlike cast of characters.

Newt Gingrich asked for mercy and forgiveness when he confessed his marital infidelity to James Dobson Friday. He couldn't have been more sincere. Humility is a trait widely believed in Washington to be the first sign of unbridled ambition.
