Which one?

Helene Cooper of the NY Times suggests Cairo

Abe Greenwald thinks Cairo is a terrible idea as is the entire plan.

James Taranto of the WSJ suggests (seriously, so he claims): Mecca.

Despite Cooper's silly notion that it would somehow be "cheating," if he makes good on the idea, I would bet Jakarta.

I can appreciate the value of symbolism, but it can cut both ways.

This seems more like a gimmick than a meaningful gesture.

Funny! The so-called editorials from those major papers are talking about "where." This should be the least attention paid to where Obama chooses to as the venue. We need a leader who understands the real issues and he says, not where he speaks from.
