Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Interesting, Fox not running an online poll. Must have figured it would have embarassed McCain.

But there is no Reagan administration to follow here . . .

I thing it was a marvelous job of targeted marketing.
That's what I said.
