How, may I ask, can a charm offensive work when your team continues to attack those you are trying to charm. It might be possible for the parties to achieve a breakthrough if one side (that would be the party attempting to charm) brought a concrete proposal to the table.
Otherwise it’s just charm for the sake of charm. That’s kind of like a certain “celebrity” I ran into last weekend outsider Canter’s, a woman famous for the sake of being famous.
*save for a boost in the president’s public image.
