A Diplomat

While I haven't picked a Democratic candidate yet (it's way too early), Bill Richardson's WaPo editorial expresses a level of diplomatic wisdom that our current administration lacks:

"No nation has ever been forced to renounce nuclear weapons, but many have
chosen to do so. The Iranians will not end their nuclear program because
we threaten them and call them names. They will renounce nukes because we
convince them that they will be safer and more prosperous if they do that than
if they don’t."
