The full-frontal foreign policy debate gets hotter everyday. McCain thinks there are votes in attacking Obama as “anti-war.” These new pieces for The New Yorker are about where that connects with Bush and how that winds up conferring bona fides on Obama in his nomination fight.

Well, none of these people have actually tasted this. Maybe that’s a good thing!
