Re: Israel and Obama’s Radical Past

by Steven F. Hayward

Regarding Stanley’s post highlighting the almost certain ideological hostility Obama has for Israel, I’m reminded again of Glenn Reynolds’s refrain that a rerun of the Carter administration may be the best-case scenario for the Obama presidency. Cy Vance, Carter’s disaffected secretary of state, wrote in his memoirs that Carter had planned to sell out Israel if he was reelected in 1980. Obama looks poised to pick up where Jimmy left off.
