Did you mean former Sec of State William Cohen....a very good choice...and I actually think Bill Clinton would be able to reason with them but only if Hilary gives him his testicles back...:p:p
He has always struck me as a reasonable, insightful person. Both he and SecDef Gates have shown great statesmanship, in rising above partisan lines to serve their country under opposition administrations. My hat is off to them.
Perhaps a delegation of Condy, Carter, and Cohen could put together a peace deal for the new Egypt?
