Robert Farley (Lawyers, Guns and Money, University of Kentucky) and Michael Cohen (The Century Foundation, The Boston Globe, World Politics Review)

On Foreign Entanglements, Rob speaks with Michael about the political conventions. Michael, who attended both conventions, says it was like going from a country club to New York City. Rob and Michael talk about newfound Democratic confidence in foreign policy, and they wonder how hawkish the party can become. Rob asks Michael who he thinks might take the key foreign policy positions in the Obama and Romney administrations, and they evaluate John Bolton, John McCain, and George W. Bush as picks for Secretary of State. Looking past the 2012 election, Michael asks Rob about the prospects of a 2016 Rand Paul run for the GOP nomination.
