Kaplan confirms obvious: McCain=Bush
In a recent interview in Der Spiegel, however, Kaplan admitted that the Iraq War was a mistake--"(R)eality demands this answer," he said--but here's the most important bit for those who aren't convinced that a vote for McCain is a vote for a fourth Bush term.
SPIEGEL ONLINE: The Iraq war was percieved as the one chance the neocons had in our time to prove that their theories were right. Is neoconservatism already a historical footnote?So: Want more Bush-style foreign policy? McCain's your man!
Kaplan: The near-term argument here is that if John McCain wins the presidential election, neoconservatism will have been vindicated. Because by voting him into office, people will have tacitly given their endorsement to that sort of foreign policy.
