Historic handshakes between Israeli and Palestinian leaders in Annapolis this week, seven long years since the last comprehensive peace talks fell apart. What it will mean this time is anyone's guess.

And speaking of guessing: who's the GOP presidential frontrunner now? The YouTube debate was a bumpy ride.

Meanwhile, Pakistan's Musharraf shed his uniform. The Broadway strike ended in time for the holidays. Trent Lott bows out. Housing prices swoon. And the Iraq picture is a mix of big hurdles and a little hope.

Trudy Rubin, syndicated foreign affairs columnist for The Philadelphia Inquirer.
