Lugar and Isaacson Speak at Tufts Re Foreign Policy and Diplomacy
http://www.boston.com/news/education/higher/articles/20... /


This point jumped out.....

"Isaacson recounted a meeting between President Bush and Time's editors during the 2000 presidential campaign, during which Bush spoke "with great eloquence on the need for more humility in American foreign policy." Pausing to let a murmur of laughter roll through the crowd, Isaacson, who now heads the Aspen Institute, an international relations think tank, acknowledged the need for a more "assertive" foreign policy in the wake of Sept. 11.

"I do wish we could learn a little from old Dr. Franklin and at least fake a little humility, give the appearance of humility, and listen to our allies," Isaacson said to loud applause."
