We've hit a bit of a lull in the election season, so I've relished the opportunity to keep out of the political morass for a brief while, but today's column from Frank Rich (man, am I glad his stuff is free again) bears posting. Rich examines the impact of Barack Obama's just-completed foreign tour, and how it makes even more stark the difference between Mr. Obama and Mr. McCain. Here's the takeaway:
...what we’ve learned this month is that America, our allies and most likely the next Congress are moving toward Mr. Obama’s post-Iraq vision of the future, whether he reaches the White House or not. That’s some small comfort as we contemplate the strange alternative offered by the Republicans: a candidate so oblivious to our nation’s big challenges ahead that he is doubling down in his campaign against both Mr. Maliki and Mr. Obama to be elected commander in chief of the surge.
