Romney’s Foreign Policy Team

Thursday, October 6, 2011  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

My column asks whether Mitt Romney or Rick Perry is better positioned to get to the magic number of 270 electoral college votes.

The news among the insiders is that Romney gained the support of fundraising baron Paul Singer.

But much more important for the country, and for the foreign policy elite of the GOP, is the make-up of Romney’s advisory team when it comes to plans to reclaim America’s preeminent position in global affairs. From Mike Allen’s Playbook:

FIRST LOOK: Ahead of Mitt Romney’s foreign-policy speech tomorrow at 10:45 a.m. at The Citadel in Charleston, S.C., he today will announce his Foreign Policy and National Security Advisory Team, saying: “Their remarkable experience, wisdom, and depth of knowledge will be critical to ensuring that the 21st century is another American Century.”
