Is it too early to be excited about Abbas?

Unfortunately, since this article is from the NYT, it's probably false (hey, you reap what you sow). However, it sure is nice to see someone from Palestine looking to the future instead of continuing to get caught up in the twists and turns of who-did-what-to-whom-and-when-and-how-can-we-make-them-suffer politics that has plagued the region for longer than I've been alive.

Am I wrong to believe that a slow progress towards peace is now an actual possibility instead of just a verbal facade to allow time for more suicide bombers, as it was under Arafat?

I wanna believe . . . I really do. Don't disappoint me.
