    My understanding is that his support for preemptive military action is based on having actionable intelligence. One would expect ANY President to act preemptively if they had actionable intelligence that a strike was imminent.

    As long as the president is a Democrat, actionable intelligence is acceptable.

    Well it does require some semblance of intellect to sort through the raw data and reach a reasonable conclusion. So maybe you are on to something there Ben.

    That is a judgment call, from what I can tell from history.

    That is why we should be scared that McCain is even this close to the White House.

    He has used poor judgment in his political and personal life. Not simple mistakes but things that make people shudder.

    And leave it to Palin to make a judgment call... oh, God... we are doomed.
