Traveling Locally, Thinking Globally

Well, I didn't have to go far today to think globally. Just a few blocks from home and I was surrounded by a group of foreign policy experts, including former Secretary of State Madeline Albright, former Secretary of Defense Frank Carlucci and Former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge. The event was sponsored by the Center for U.S. Global Engagement, a group formed of diverse actors to broaden understanding of America's interest in "building a better, safer world." It would seem logical to bring together the diplomatic, business and development communities yet that has not taken place with the degree of focus necessary. So, this group will focus on incorporating the greater use of development and diplomacy into the 2008 Presidential campaigns. Stay tuned.
