It's all a matter of perspective.

I realize that I am a couple of days late to this, but I finally got around to reading Charles Krauthammer's response to Al Gore's speech in San Francisco earlier this week. In the speech, Gore venemously criticized President Bush's foregn policy and basicly contradicted everything that he (Al Gore) ever said about Iraq as vice president and as a senator. He was obviously trying to wiggle out a spot to run for president from, as all of the current Democrat presidential contenders have pretty much agreed with Bush on the war. Krauthammer is right on when he writes:

The New York Times reports that Gore wrote the speech "after consulting a fairly far-flung group of advisers that included Rob Reiner." Current U.S. foreign policy is the combined product of Donald Rumsfeld, Condoleezza Rice, Dick Cheney, Colin Powell, Paul Wolfowitz and the president. Meanwhile, the pretender is huddling with Meathead.

Had it not been for a few little old ladies baffled by the butterfly ballot in Palm Beach, Fla., American foreign policy today would be made by Gore-Reiner instead of the Bush brain trust. Who says God doesn't smile upon the United States of America?
