Legitimate Doubts About McCain
E.J. Dionne writes that Dems Should Challenge McCain on Terror
If McCain’s central “transcendent challenge” to defeat radical Islamic extremists claim falls apart on close examination, the best rationale he has for his election would disappear.
…Presumably, he’s saying that Islamic extremism is more important than everything else — the rise of China and India as global powers, growing resistance to American influence in Europe, the weakening of America’s global economic position, the disorder and poverty in large parts of Africa, the alienation of significant parts of Latin America from the United States. Is it in our national interest for all these issues to take a back seat to terrorism?
