  2. Well, Robert, I wish ya’ll luck with that. Ron Paul’s foreign policy is one I largely support, but his agenda is very libertarian. I think for real renewal, the GOP needs to recapture the legacy of Teddy Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Harold Stassen. But I see little movement in that direction, yet.

  3. Alas, it seems that what’s likely to follow (if we’re lucky!) is the slightly milder “multilateral” version of this same ideology that we got during the Clinton years. I note that Blumenthal has just gone to work for Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

  4. Alas, Lee, you could be right. And, just because I agree with Blumenthal about the Neo-cons, doesn’t mean I think he’s backing the right candidate in this campaign!
