Kids have Christmas, and Lindsey Graham had his recent road trip with John McCain and Joe Lieberman to Iraq, the Mideast and Europe. To a foreign policy wonk, what could be better? I’d like to have been along myself.
Basically, he got to be at the elbow of the guy who, as he put it, has a 50-50 chance of being president
next time he talks to these foreign leaders, only under circumstances without all the formal bull you have to deal with traveling with an actual president.
Anyway, as this clip begins, he is giving his enthusiastic assessment (which now that I look back at the video, sort of stands in contrast to the merely polite description he gave of Gov. Sanford) of Nicolas Sarkozy of France, and goes on from there. This was near the very start of our meeting.
