Maybe Obama Should Go to Tehran

Maybe President Obama should take a leaf out of Nixon’s book and go to Iran. That would really dish Putin, put Iran in charge of our mess in the Middle East, and get Iraq off our hands. It would also mean supporting an imperfect but fairly stable democracy rather than having to choose either military dictatorships like Egypt and Syria, or fanatical proto-theocracies like ISIS and the Taliban. Iran could pay for the privilege of having its own sphere of influence by recognizing Israel.
