The president’s interesting trade proposal


Ben Smith in Politico reports President Obama proposed a swap last night as the meeting between him and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ended to help  the political problems of both men:

“So," Obama announced, according to the source in the room, "we’ve decided that we are going to trade our Lieberman for their Lieberman," referring to the independent American senator and the hard-line Israeli foreign minister.

Does anyone know Avigdor Lieberman’s stance on the public option?
