Lake accuses Democrats of Conservatism

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 he’s no supporter of the president’s 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 today’s challenges, Lake contends, Democrats "need to be thinking large, and they’re not."
