    Many people seem to think the upcoming presidential election will inevitably send American foreign policy down one of two radically different paths. Writing in the Atlantic, for example, the political commentator Michael Barone argues that this year's balloting may be the "most important in generations" since the Bush team would see reelection as a vindication of its aggressive course while a Kerry administration would end up kowtowing to Europe and the United Nations. Similar views echo from The Nation to the National Review.
    Pish posh. Sure, there would be some differences between what the two camps would do, both in style (a lot) and substance (a little). But the similarities would be far more pronounced because Bush and Kerry's current positions on major issues just aren't that far apart--and because whoever is elected will have relatively little room for maneuver.

    Nope, won't wash.

    Kerry has so many positions, it is inevitable that some of them will be similar to GW's. It is also highly likely that, if elected, kerry will do that which is in the best interest of Europe while ignoring the safety of the USA. Kerry is simply a puppet dangling on Clinton's strings. Clinton did nothing to protect this nation and he will ensure that kerry's policies are identical.
