Having the Grown-Ups In Charge

Andrew Sullivan, on the complete lack of foreign policy leadership among the Republican Party's decimated ranks:
We've known for some time that the United States cannot afford the current Republican leadership to be in charge of foreign policy. They have neither the understanding, judgement or temperament to do so. They veer from hoping Ahmadinejad to win all the way to wanting to stand up and get the president cheering for one faction in an extremely tense and difficult situation. Just thank your stars we do not have McCain or Palin grandstanding this in the White House right now.
Good Lord! Can you imagine a "VP Palin" (Ugh...I still cramp up at the thought) even trying to dissect what is going on in Iran right now?!? ("Awww...Aren't they cute? God bless 'em and their little green fingers awl-so.")

Obama really is playing Reagan to the GOP's Carter.
