See drezner.foreignpolicy.com today for his post on Obama's speech as a mix of different theories of international relations. I will think about it, but am just catching up after driving to and from Ottawa.
Being one and a half hours away from a national capitol is handy in some ways and a bit far in others. While I have the chance to be in the audience for Gen. McChystral's appearance next week, I am going to have to change my mind and not go. Too much driving for that, but just enough driving to meet with folks to start my travel prep for March.
