As this article by E.J. Dionne details, former Clinton National Security Advisor Anthony Lake is chastising Democrats for clinging to "the traditions of the last 50 years" in foreign policy. While hes no supporter of the presidents approach, he agrees that the country ought to be engaged in spreading democracy abroad. Moreover, he claims that institutions like NATO and the UN must be reformed to reflect new international realities. In response to todays challenges, Lake contends, Democrats "need to be thinking large, and theyre not."
