You are probably right but it is still worth a gamble. After all, why did Obama pick him? I can't think of a single reason why it helped him politically with either Democrats or Republicans. Maybe, must maybe, Obama (like Gorbachev and the men who dismantled the British Empire) realizes that he can't have guns and better and needs to scale back the empire a tad bit. I admit that it is a long shot but stranger things have happened.
