I like the cloud strategy. If he can get the clouds to agree on putting out the fire than Obama will have something to negotiate with or even, pray tell, go the United Nations with the full backing of the clouds. With the clouds backing him, Obama could convince the UN to create a resolution condemning the fire. Or even go so far as to create sanctions against the fire. But even Obama has openly admitted he has a hot road ahead of him and even stated, "I've looked at clouds from both sides now. From up and down, and still somehow it's cloud illusions I recall. I really don't know clouds at all."
