"the fundamental premise of the Bush Doctrine is true: The United States possesses the means—economic, military, diplomatic—to realize its expansive geopolitical purposes. Further, and especially in light of the domestic political reaction to the attacks of September 11, the victory in Afghanistan and the remarkable skill demonstrated by President Bush in focusing national attention, it is equally true that Americans possess the requisite political willpower to pursue an expansive strategy."

Remember when you weren’t sure what “requisite political willpower” was?

Whatever happened to Jeffersonian Democracy?

Why are the Republicans Jacksonians?

Why did we fight World War I?
