news & opinion with no titillating non-news from the major non-news channels.
I am: progressive, not a wild-eyed Progressive; liberal, but shun liberals and Liberals; conservative, but some Conservatives worry me; absolutely NOT a libertarian. I am: an idealist, but no utopian; a pragmatist, but no Machiavellian. I am a realist who dreams.
I welcome all opinions.

Walter Russell Mead
pre 9/11 classic on American Foreign Policy history
In the wake of the Cold War, many were asking, Whither now? Mead provides a compass, and his compass survived the test of 9/11.
