Si cum termina Blair treaba de prim-ministru, Bush s-a gandit sa nu-l la se pe om sa se plictiseasca acasa cu nevasta si cu ala micu (alti 3 sunt mari). Si asa ca Tony se va ocupat de tricotat pulovere in avioanele de pe ruta Londra-Tel Aviv. Tony, porumbelul pacii.

The Bush administration is laying the groundwork for an announcement of Tony Blair as special Middle East envoy for Palestinian governance and economic issues after he steps down as Britain's prime minister, following two months of behind-the-scenes negotiations, according to U.S. officials.
Blair would report to the so-called Quartet overseeing Middle East peace efforts--the United States, the United Nations, the European Union and Russia--and work on issues limited to the internal workings of a future Palestinian state. Political negotiations involving Palestinians, Israelis and the Arab states would be left to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, the officials said.
