Tuesday's election will have tremendous impact on our country and our world. This of course includes our work striving for peace for Israel and Palestine. Who sits in the White House, and the team of people who work for that person, will define the framework in which our work is done. In addition to that, which parties control the House and the Senate, and which elected officials serve as leaders, committee chairs and champions, will be critically important.
