First, Scott MacLeod at Time Magazine’s Middle East Blog writes on Rahm Emanuel and his potential influence on Obama’s Middle East policy; Second, James Brazier at the Diplomatic Courier, offers his take on how the U.S. should play the “Saudi-Iranian Cold War” under an Obama administration, all-the-while hinting at Lawrence J. Korb having a position in the new administration; Third, Daoud Kuttab, former Professor of Journalism at Princeton, writes in the Jerusalem Post on the hope for democracy in the Middle East after Obama’s victory; Fourth, Ximena Ortiz at the National Interest Online tracks Obama’s potential to remain true on campaign promises related to Iran, Iraq, and Afghanistan; Finally, fifth, Shashi Tharoor, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Thomas H. Kean, Lee H. Hamilton, Linda Chavez, Jeffrey Sachs, et al, give their two cents on what “Job One” should be for the president-elect.
