    (Its been suggested that Obama's campaign plan is to turn the electoral discussion on his opponents, and have the discussion be about them, rather than to let it run its normal course and be a referendum on him and his policies during the first four years. Here's AP/Yahoo riding to the rescue, right on cue. Iran is four years closer to a nuclear weapon and now has one of our drones, we've cut and run in Iraq, cancelled the f-22, and DOD's official policy is to let America's enemies win, and they dare suggest that we're safer today?
    Ezra Klein's journolist is alive, well, and even thriving today.)

    "The silver-haired deans of American statecraft—Henry Kissinger, Brent Scowcroft, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Robert Gates and Jim Jones—gathered this week at a high-profile policy council to lament the inanity of political discourse in this presidential election cycle. They also concurred that the fast-vanishing center of American political debate will likely yield perilous consequences for national-security issues.

    "I can't help but think when listening to the presidential debates, how unbelievably ignorant are both the candidates and the public listening to them," Zbigniew Brzezinski, former national security adviser for President Jimmy Carter, told a conference hosted by the Atlantic Council Tuesday to honor former Bush 41 National Security Adviser Scowcroft. "It affects how the world sees us.""
