Lugar Endorses Obama's "Diplomacy"

Sen. Dick Lugar (R-IN) has some kind words to say about Obama's approach to foreign policy:
"He correctly cautions against the implication that hostile nations must be dealt with almost exclusively through isolation or military force," Lugar said in a prepared remarks released before his speech. "In some cases, refusing to talk can even be dangerous."
I think the refusal to talk to our enemies is one of the most ignorant, bone-headed policies conducted by an administration which has a lot of ignorant, bone-headed policies. Diplomacy can't solve everything, but it must be the first, second, third, fourth and fifth option. For Bush, and McCain/Palin, an ignorant rush to war is the only option.
