Madeleine Albright speaks at Princeton: a follow-up note
Last week, I saw Madeleine Albright speak at Princeton, and wrote it up as a TigerHawk/Belmont Club exclusive. Now the video is up (scroll down to "4 pm Friday" and pick your favorite bandwidth). The video is worth watching for three reasons. First, Albright is, for better or for worse, the most well-known and probably the most serious foreign policy expert that the Democratic Party has. It is useful to listen to her, if for no other reason than to hear the "reasonable version" of the mainstream Democratic criticism of United States foreign policy under Bush. And, frankly, she has a number of interesting observations that she would not have made on a Sunday news show and which I failed to capture in my notes. Second, at 56:45, you can hear what she says about Kim Jong-Il, which is hilarious. Third, at 47:30, you can hear me -- TigerHawk -- ask her the best question I could muster about the Clinton administration's policy toward Iran. That alone is worth the price of admission.
