Top 10 Things That Didn't Happen in 2007

Just like Time's Person of the Year, this list comes with a "for better or for worse" attached to it. You can decide for yourselves which is for better and which is for worse. Here it is, in no particular order:

  • Vice President Cheney did not invoke martial law.
  • Former Vice President Al Gore did not enter the race for the presidency.
  • A final peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians, establishing a democratic, moderate, non-hostile State of Palestine in the West Bank and Gaza, was not reached.
  • Former President George H. W. Bush did not apologize to Americans and the whole world for how his son and namesake turned out.
  • "I screwed up the war and pretty much everything else I've done since, therefore I step down", said not Ehud Olmert (nor did George W. Bush).
  • Hugo Chavez did not win his bid to change Venezuela's constitution so he could remain in office all his life.
  • The Israeli Knesset didn't do its job - which is to supervise the government and pass laws that make Israelis' lives better.
  • Joe Biden did not talk too much.
  • Iran was not attacked.
  • Israel has not been nuked, nor has any other country.
