Just shows he doesn't get everything right. Does he think Kerry is able to lead? Or is he going to be happy with Kerry as a figurehead, and others in positions of real power?
I thought his thesis and presentation were powerful, but he gave me the creeps, personally.
Ideas such as "the gap" and "connectedness" makd a lot of sense.
PS: I sat down at the computer to 'google' - Thomas Barnett National Defense University - checked into FR briefly first - and saw this post.
Freepers are always in the forefront!
Based on what I heard him say, I completely disagree with the conclusion that he would vote for Kerry. He expressed to much admiration for Rumsfeld and his consulting and current assignements are too clearly aligned with the current adminstration for me to figure out how it would be to his economic, career, or ideological benefit to see Kerry. Personally I think the statement was either mistaken or intentional slander.
