C-SPAN now has the complete proceedings of today's New America Foundation on "The Real State of U.S. Foreign Policy 2006" up on their website.  Just go to , and click on the "All Recent Programs" link at the bottom of the page.  The link is entitled "New America Foundation on State of Foreign Policy."

If you've got a little more than 4 hours, the entire thing is well worth watching, if for no other reason than to see how united foreign policy experts coming from both conservative and liberal points of view are in their view of how badly the Bush administration has screwed up our standing in the world.

But if you've got limited time, Wesley Clark's keynote address on "The Real, State of the Union 2006" begins about at about 3:25:40 into the program.  It's nice to see a genuine statesman's take on the state of the union, rather than that of the overgrown frat boy and pretend cowboy that we're going to see delivering the official one tomorrow night.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
