    Well, at the debates the Republican (if it's Newt, maybe if it's Mitt) will note that Al Qaeda is not the same as the Palestinians, and that appeasement on the Israel/Palestine issue is leading to regional instability which increases the number of AQ folks he's got to kill to keep America safe. Or some such thing.

    So this was a good line, and delivered very well. And it highlights why foreign policy will not be a major focus for the GOP candidate in their attacks on the president -- the presidents' foreign policy (especially on war) has been very good.

    But he shouldn't plan to lean on it in every case.

    it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses
