Thomas Wright: Buttigieg splits from the progressives on foreign policy. Two candidates for president—Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren —have embraced the progressive-foreign-policy label. Reading their speeches and articles, two major themes stand out. They oppose military intervention in Syria and Iraq. They support the Iran nuclear deal.

They want to get tough with Saudi Arabia, going beyond simply ending U. Both favor an end to the war in Afghanistan, and both have questioned the extent of ongoing operations against terrorist networks. However, when you drill down, the two presidential candidates are difficult to pin down on whether they oppose military intervention on principle or, if not, under what conditions they might support it.

Unlike Sanders, Warren never had to vote or comment on these interventions. She has been careful not to shed any light on her views on them since becoming a U. However, Warren does have a track record from when she entered politics in The 44th president was also deeply skeptical of military interventions, but found himself drawn in.

For instance, by , Obama had pulled American troops out of Iraq and was holding fast against involvement in Syria. But the rise of ISIS, the beheading of hostages, and the fall of Mosul created a groundswell of public pressure to deal directly with the threat. It was a reminder that even a president skeptical of intervention is one terrorist attack away from getting involved.

That dynamic will not change in A progressive president is unlikely to argue that the United States should be indifferent to an ISIS-style group in the Middle East that conquers territory or attacks Americans. There is little doubt that Sanders and Warren are sincere in their desire to prioritize diplomacy over the use of force, but here, too, they have a dilemma: When it comes to preventing a rogue state from acquiring nuclear weapons, a credible threat to use force often creates the leverage necessary to get the other side to the table.

The second theme is that both of them draw a dramatic divide between democratic and authoritarian states. There is currently a struggle of enormous consequence taking place in the United States and throughout the world. In it, we see two competing visions. On one hand, we see a growing worldwide movement toward authoritarianism, oligarchy, and kleptocracy. On the other side, we see a movement toward strengthening democracy, egalitarianism, and economic, social, racial, and environmental justice. This struggle has consequences for the entire future of the planet—economically, socially, and environmentally.

In her Foreign Affairs essay, Warren struck a similar note:. Authoritarian governments are gaining power, and right-wing demagogues are gaining strength. Movements toward openness and pluralism have stalled. Inequality is growing, transforming rule by the people into rule by wealthy elites. And here in the United States, many Americans seem to accept—even embrace—the politics of division and resentment.

First, he successfully compares and contrasts the personalities and principles of McAdoo and Baker.

McAdoo was "an individualist and egotist" as well as a self-promoter, while the scholarly, reticent, and self-effacing Baker remained "intensely loyal to Wilson" 49, Put another way, McAdoo was the "hare" who hopped from one business or political venture to another, winning friends and making enemies, while Baker was the "tortoise" who adhered to legal niceties, reluctantly embraced the centralizing impulses of the state, and carefully built a stable family, lasting relationships, and financial solvency--all of which eluded his dynamic, thrice-wed counterpart An unknown error has occurred.
