Bob Wright points out to me that our very first BloggingHeads.tv diavlog took place shortly in the aftermath of Hamas’ electoral victory. He was a Hamas optimist (Hamastimist?) who saw this as, finally, an opportunity for Israel to negotiate with a government that was actually capable of controlling anti-Israel violence and thus being held accountable for a failure to do the same. I was more pessimistic and thought that the Israeli government would primarily see this as an opportunity to secure international diplomatic support for continuing a no negotiations posture. Predictions are rarely perfect, but I think I came out pretty well on this point.
