This ought to be good:
Hillary Clinton to Portray Donald Trump’s Foreign Policy Positions as Dangerous
Little Ms. Libya speaks and anyone with an irony-poor diet ought to listen.
Hillary Clinton plans to deliver a scorching assessment of Donald J. Trump’s foreign policy prescriptions on Thursday, casting her likely Republican rival as a threat to decades of bipartisan tenets of American diplomacy and declaring him unfit for the presidency.
This characterization of Trump, while accurate, will be news to no one. So will it change anyone's mind?
Mrs. Clinton’s campaign aides said the speech, which she will deliver in San Diego, would be the start of a persistent assault to portray a potential Trump presidency as a dangerous proposition that would weaken American alliances and embolden enemies.
He will weaken our alliances and embolden enemies. Yeah, Trump is a loose cannon who so loves the sound of his own voice that he is likely to indulge in riffs that criticize the Brits, mock the French and leave the Saudis feeling abandoned. My goodness, he might even engage in a bit of live improv to invent new policy, to the surprise of his national security advisers.
Yet the Republic has endured.
Jonah Goldberg reprised an interesting argument I have grappled with at social occasions:
During a panel Q&A, a passenger on the cruise made a strong case for voting Trump. He ably argued that we know Hillary will be terrible, while we can only suspect Trump will be. Trump will probably do some things conservatives will like — Supreme Court appointments, etc. — while we know for a fact Hillary will not.
And here’s what I said: I agree. If the election were a perfect tie, and the vote fell to me and me alone, I’d probably vote for none other than Donald Trump for precisely these reasons.
