“What worries me is that McCain’s eagerness for more conflict in the world – pushing Russia and China into a corner – is not in the best interests of the United States. It may be moral; it may be exciting; it may provide the great national purpose McCain thinks we all need to feel. But it ignores the hard trade-offs involved, and perpetuates the whole with-us-or-against us bluster of the last eight years. We need more of that? More enemies? Less diplomacy? More conflict?
Count me out.”
This is Andrew Sullivan, who was a long time ago (it feels like a long time anyway) a blog that I read daily.
But that was before he got tired of trying to do the right thing and became a Democrat.
