Those Second Term Blues
President Bush and Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh announced an agreement on a landmark nuclear-energy deal, a coup for Mr. Bush’s first visit to India.
The leaders announced the deal, which will open most Indian reactors to international inspections and provide the growing nation with U.S. nuclear technology, during a joint news conference after meeting privately to hammer out details. Mr. Bush said the agreement could help ease energy prices in the U.S.
I know the left will compare it this bit of Bush diplomacy unfavorably to Clinton’s bongo trip in Africa, or Secretary of State Albright’s meet and greet with Kim Jong Il in October, 2000, but the deepening ties with the world’s largest democracy are very good things indeed.
