Republican Pragmatists Closer on Policy With Obama Than With McCain and the Neocons
Posted by James Lamond

Since Colin Powell endorsed Barack Obama last Sunday, there has been a great deal of discussion about the divide within the Republican Party between the Neoconservatives and the more traditional conservatives, often labeled Pragmatists. 

At Democracy Arsenal we looked at statements given by republican foreign policy thinkers from both camps and compared them side-by-side to statements given by the two presidential candidates.  We found that the positions and views of the Republican Pragmatists were in fact much closer to those of Barack Obama than to their own party's nominee.  Meanwhile John McCain's positions line up perfectly with the Neocons and Bush adminstraion hawks.

I hope that Obama choses either Hagel or Luger to be his Secretary of State. I trust their judgement when it comes to Russia over some Democrats such as Holbrooke and Brzezinski who share the neo-conservative view of that country.

Though I agree with you, it is too easy to just pick and choose quotes from Pragmatists that match Obama's policies.
