This month, in The Atlantic Monthly
, I have an article
on John Kerry's foreign policy and, more broadly, where the Dems are on foreign policy in the post-9/11 and -- one can only hope -- soon-to-be post-Bush era.
In the course of reporting that article I talked to various Democratic bigwigs and smallwigs. And one of those in the former category was Sen. Joe Biden
(D) of Delaware, ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee
and a possible contender for Secretary of State should John Kerry win in November -- the other two main contenders being Richard Holbrooke and Sandy Berger.
It was an extensive interview covering various contemporary foreign policy debates. And I found it extremely enlightening about the differences that separate the parties today as well as the divisions and directions of the Dems.
In any case, we'll be publishing the interview in three parts, with the first part hopefully coming later this afternoon or early tomorrow.
