The Candidates and Pakistan
A couple of people have speculated that John McCain would benefit from the renewed attention to foreign policy, since he has been the most involved of all the candidates in foreign policy and is a credible commander-in-chief. I think that’s true, but if you buy the counter-argument that Giuliani’s supporters put forward–that it’s his demonstrated executive ability that should count for most in foreign policy–then it ought to help him. Incidentally, the pundits seem to me to have turned much too bearish on the likelihood that Giuliani will win the nomination. It may look like a three-way race right now, but give it a week.
