The WP fronts a look at Sarah Palin's ambiguous characterization of the Bush Doctrine during an ABC News interview yesterday. Since the Bush administration has put forth so many doctrines, foreign-policy experts aren't sure which doctrine is the real Bush Doctrine, either.
The WP fronts a look at the next flash point in Iraq: Kurdistan. The Kurds have provocatively extended their influence over a strip of majority-Arab cities—and U.S. officials are straining to find a resolution that averts future ethnic conflict.
The WP goes inside with news that "the First Dude" of Alaska has been subpoenaed. Alaska legislators want Sarah Palin's husband to testify in the Troopergate scandal. McCain calls the subpoena a politicized decision designed to help Obama.
A testament to character. Obama may be a celebrity in Europe, but the WSJ reports John McCain has some unlikely overseas fans, too: His former Vietnamese captors are strongly supportive of his presidential bid.
