After 5 years of a foreign policy that felt like the one promulgated by Bush, the anti-Bush moment has arrived. John Kerry fulfills the promise of the wobegone Obama by negotiating the world further away from war. To think that the guy to finally reverse the shoot-first doctrine would be the guy we voted for to do that in 2004. In Syria and a now Iran, he is forcing the world to think differently. And yes, sometimes, in French.
