    We at least know exactly what Obama's deeply considered opinions are coming from.

    I'm not going to argue nuance here, because I don't get the sense by this diary that you are interested in putting the Reagan argument in its actual context, or to really even delve into what the appropriate Cold War strategies were (most foreign policy realists would agree with Obama's position in terms of the broad strokes).

    I will state though, that I'm sure HRC would agree with Obama's position, if the polling data advised her to do so.  She would throw together some patchwork soundbyte saying whatever it is that a target demographic wants to hear at a given moment rather than speaking her mind, or respecting an audiences' intelligence.
