The issues page of John McCain’s campaign website doesn’t have a section on foreign policy. National security, yes; homeland security, yes; Iraq, yes. But global diplomacy, even of the shoe-thumping type practiced by Nikita Khrushchev and John Bolton, is too trivial to rate a mention. (Minor and vague exception on climate change negotiations.)
Why doesn’t he score points with the base by proposing to abolish the useless State Department?
