The "Vision Thing" Turnabout

Robert Tagorda has an interesing post on the issue of foreign policy vision in the context of Bush v. Kerry. Building off a David Brooks colulmn, he notes that Kerry lacks a clear vision for US foreign relations in the era of terror, while Bush actually has a grand vision on the topic. The irony is that while his father was plagued by the "vision thing" in terms of the lack thereof, Bush 43 has the advantage in this are going into a head-to-head contest with Bush.

I still maintain that one of the most salient questions for voters this year is going to ultimately be "who makes me feel safer, Bush or Kerry?" and that despite the WMD woes in Iraq, Bush comes out on top if that is the question that undecided voters are asking themselves come November.
