On November 17, I wrote in “The Case for Newt Gingrich” that Newt could do better than Mitt Romney. Romney announced a foreign policy team that lacked a clear interest oriented foreign policy. On November 22nd, the Gingrich campaign announced its own national security team that confirmed my judgment. Newt is better than Romney on foreign policy.
Norman Bailey, Bill Schneider, Ken DeGraffenreid and Herman Perchner, among others on the team, are superb strategic thinkers. At least three have the stuff it takes to be National Security Advisor to the President or U.S. Secretary of State. Newt is to be congratulated for attracting to these advisors to his team. Now we await the publication of national security and foreign policy papers worthy of Presidential candidate.
