"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Speak Softly and Carry a Smaller Stick - New York Times

Speak Softly and Carry a Smaller Stick - New York Times: "America's current mood is less a rejection of the rest of the world than it is a deep concern about terrorism and a growing wariness about America's own assertive foreign policy."

Don't call it "isolationism" but whatever you call it, if we don't do it, no one will, which is a recipe for disaster.
