Palin’s lack of curiosity discussed

leave a comment »

“The U.S. has a history as long as a blink of an eye in comparison to much of the rest of the world, so it may be understandable that we have little interest in world history. U.S. citizens are some of the least traveled among developed countries, so that may explain our lack of knowledge of other cultures. But in order just to protect ourselves and avoid mistakes that strengthen our enemies and weaken the U.S., we need leaders who are curious about the world, its history and its cultures. The nomination of Sarah Palin sends exactly the wrong message to the world and guarantees four more years of foreign policy and military mistakes in a world far more dangerous than it was eight years ago.” – Chuck McLean, director of the Denver Research Group

The Washington Post created a new section on their website, PostGlobal, on which experts in international affairs discuss their views of what is happening and likely to happen across the globe.

Chuck McLean discusses, in his article, Palin’s Dangerous Lack of Curiosity, regarding Sarah Palin’s nomination, why he believes it was a poor choice.
