Clueless is as clueless does

Former New Mexico Governor and one-time Democratic Presidential Candidate Bill Richardson--who is on Barack Obama's crack (or should I say, cracked?) foreign policy team--offers some pearls of wisdom on the Russian steamrolling of Georgia: You see, we have it all wrong, here! We should just be nice to Russia and use "DIPLOMACY" to get them to see the error of their ways. I have to say, it's amazing to me that nearly 20 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the left in this country still has absolutely no clue whatsoever about why the USSR collapsed. None. Diplomacy? WHAT diplomacy? The U.N.? Hey Bill, you were the American ambassador to the U.N., but maybe you missed this little tidbit of information: Russia has a VETO on the Security Council! No, really, it's true!

If this is the type of foreign policy advice that Barack Obama is receiving, God help us all........

Dear BHG- I just heard McCain call for the exact same action vs. Russia, noting the veto power but opining that it would subject the aggressor to "the court of world opinion"
I don't believe that he is a member of "the left", or a member of Obama's foreign policy advisers.
