Another indicator Eli could have mentioned that would have fit right in with his narrative -- Palin seems to have dumped her neocon.


Besides, I don't think it's entirely misguided to assume that one can broadly extrapolate from a candidate's ideology to their foreign policy.

I don't think it's unfair to assume, for example, that a President Bachmann would be have a much lower threshold for unilatterally committing US forces to combat, while at the same time being much more hesitant to readily support UN-driven efforts. Likewise, a President Romney seems both much more cautious and much more attuned to the budgetary consequences and that much less likely to deploy troops.
