Interestingly, Sarah Palin seems to have outlined a sensible “imminent threat” standard for preemptive military action. It would have been nice for Charlie Gibson to point out that George W. Bush and John McCain agree that this is the wrong standard and we have the right to use military force unilaterally even where there isn’t an imminent threat. I think Palin’s view is sensible, so it would be interesting to learn her opinion of her running mate’s much less sensible view.
