Preview of My Principled Opposition « GWOT »

...if President Kerry gets elected. By Q and O Blog.

I'll add one thing to what he said. If John Kerry is already on record that he will make sure he has international support checked off before the US will act, he's just made the price of that international support much higher.

It's like playing poker, but announcing that you are going to fold if the pot goes above a certain dollar amount no matter what you have in your hand...or telling everyone you only go over $5 bids if you have a full house or higher.

Bottom Line: in international politics, you don't tip your hand ahead of time. By doing so, Kerry has already disqualified himself from the Presidency. IMHO.

Michael still reads Sullivan regularly, I don't ever. Frankly, he bores me.

And this is as opposed to GW's policy of *demonstrating* that he *won't* necessarily seek international support and that he *will* act unilaterally.

I wonder which path makes for smoother foreign policy?

Which is more important: a smooth foreign policy or an effective one? I know which one I prefer....

...yeah, that's a cheap shot. But I really do prefer a President, like George W. Bush, who has the courage to stand up for his principles and go it alone when necessary. Interestingly, that's nearly word-for-word what the DNC's 2004 platform says it wants.
