The Corner


Jonah, you are absloutely right. Create the Kerry Commission on European Diplomacy. Have Joe Biden in and out of the WH constantly, because his ideas are so irresistibly thoughtful. Appoint any high-profile Dem you can find to ambassadorships. Rip ideas out of the Kerry campaign playbook–bigger special forces, more spending on decent education in the Islamic world–and extravegently credit Kerry for advancing them so persuasively in this campaign. Use every soft-sell tactic possible and every bi-partisan blandishment out there to create more of a bi-partisan, consensus feel around the war on terror. Might not work, but every little bit will help.
