Middle Eastern Leaders Talking to Putin, Not Obama - POLITICO Magazine

From the article: 
Why is this happening, and why on my trips to the region am I hearing that Arabs and Israelis have pretty much given up on President Barack Obama? Because perceptions matter more than mere power: The Russians are seen as willing to use power to affect the balance of power in the region, and we are not.

Another old truth about human behavior we fail to understand.  "Follow the strong horse".
