Picking the President: Diplomacy

John McCain

  • Create a "League of Democracies"
  • Use pressure, not talks, to deal with some nations
  • Reduce nukes, but keep enough to deter attacks
  • China is a competitor, expel Russia from G8
  • Keep embargo and travel restrictions on Cuba
  • Pressure U.N. to deploy peacekeepers to Darfur

Barack Obama
  • Increase U.S. involvement in U.N. and NATO
  • Talk to any head of state without preconditions
  • Work toward world without nuclear weapons
  • China is a competitor, do not expel Russia from G8
  • Lift restrictions on family travel to Cuba
  • Pressure U.N. to deploy peacekeepers to Darfur

Point to Obama, who kicks McCain's ass at this "diplomacy" thing. I mean, a peaceful solution to problems? I don't think McCain thinks that's possible.
