    ***since only about 200 million people on earth are eligible to vote for the man whose policies will impact all of us, the evening, as expected, turned into an exercise in imperial chest-thumping. President Barack Obama dredged up former Secretary of State Madeline Albright’s assertion that “America remains the indispensable nation” to remind American voters of what a great gift to the world their country is. Not to be outdone in extolling American exceptionalism, Republican candidate Mitt Romney told his compatriots, “This nation is the hope of the earth.”

    Both agreed that, as Obama put it, “We’ve got to make sure that our economy is strong at home so that we can project military power overseas.”

    Who Would Better Serve Israel?

    As the candidates sought to highlight their differences, pleasing Israel emerged as the cornerstone of each candidate’s foreign policy approach. As the progressive Israeli commentator Uri Avnery noted: “Israel was mentioned in the debate 34 times — 33 times more than Europe, 30 times more than Latin America, five times more than Afghanistan, four times more than China. Only Iran was mentioned more often — 45 times — but in the context of the danger it poses to Israel.”

    Bet your bottom dollar that
    Netanyahu and America's dualies
    will be pleased with the result of the presidential election
    regardless of whether JStreet's Obama,
    or AIPAC's Romney,
    get the most votes
    ---
    not of the people
    ---
    but
    ---
    of the members of the electoral college,
    not one of whose members
    you know or ever heard of.
