Ivo Daalder Is Really Shrill
Ivo Daalder is really shrill:
TPMCafe || No Treaties, No Summits, No Diplomacy: Let me get this straight: our secretary of state, having "made no secret of her desire to cut down on the routine summitry that clogs the calendar of top diplomat," has decided to skip the annual meeting of Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN) -- the first time in 20 years America's top diplomat won't be there.
Apparently, we not only don't do treaties in this administration, we now also don't do summits. And, of course, we've never done diplomacy. So can someone please tell me why we have a secretary of state?
