On Foreign Entanglements, Rob speaks with Dan about the aftermath of the election. Dan discusses the growing demographic problem for the GOP. Rob asks about the GOP shadow foreign policy team, and Dan describes the future of “neoconservatism 3.0“. Dan also tries to explain the continued relevance of Charles Krauthammer, while Rob wonders whether technology has changed elite foreign policy narratives. Would appointing John Kerry as Secretary of State guarantee the return of Scott Brown to the Senate? Will the GOP moderate its policies in response to defeat? Finally, they discuss whether the GOP will try to impeach Obama and whether Hillary Clinton will run for president in 2016.
