THE BIG HOMINID EXAMINES HOWARD DEAN'S POLICY ON NORTH KOREA. A snippet:
I suspect Dean would pull a Clinton while in office-- a repeat of the 1994 "agreed framework," at which NK has confessed it thumbed its nose. Clinton's and Carter's legacies regarding NK amount, in my eyes, to a huge failure. Not to let Republicans off the hook on this; I'm disappointed at how internally conflicted the Bush Administration is right now, and the rift between Pentagon and State is something that needs healing-- or at least patching. But I'm not confident Dean is the man to create a breakthrough with NK.
