Kristof: “After Tuesday, Let’s Rejoin the World.”

For eight years, the United States has been in self-imposed exile…

Nicholas D. Kristof lays out a summary opinion of the Bush legacy and what lies ahead for the next elected President, and how to rebuild our cred.

He starts:

Bush’s presidency imploded not because of any personal corruption or venality, but largely because he wrenched the United States out of the international community. His cowboy diplomacy “defriended” the United States. He turned a superpower into a rogue country.

‘Course he doesn’t touch the Cheney/Rove venality, but that may be for another day…
