Good Memo

Samantha Powers takes on "conventional wisdom."

Without being all that interested, at the moment, in all of the specifics ,it really is the case that candidates are judged by the rather arbitrary rules of the "foreign policy community" which demand they engage in these absurd rhetorical dances so they can fit themselves into the Grand Foreign Policy Community Consensus. Anyone who just tells them to shove it is doing the right thing.
