Excerpt: George W. Bush?s November 19 speech at the Reagan Library represents the strongest and clearest articulation of a policy of American global leadership by a major political figure since the collapse of the Soviet Empire. In his call for renewed American strength, confidence, and leadership, Bush stakes a claim to the legacy of Ronald Reagan. Like the other major Republican presidential candidates, Bush unequivocally rejects isolationism. More important may be Bush?s implicit (but clear) rejection of the sentiments that have animated several Republican congressional forays into foreign policy in recent years. There is no hint of a John Kasich-like delusion that we can maintain American defenses at the current budget level. There is no reluctance to have America engage, wherever necessary around the world. There is no shirking of America?s world role; on the contrary, Bush clearly recognizes that role as an essential part of American national greatness. There is no hint of a pseudo- ?realist? notion that American principles have to be set aside in favor of exclusive concentration on America?s ?vital national interests.? And there cannot be a clearer repudiation of alleged Republican ?unilateralism? than Bush?s call for a reinvigoration of NATO, closer ties with Asian allies, and his belief that ?international organizations can serve the cause of peace.? Bush embraces ?a distinctly American internationalism? that consists of ?idealism, without illusions.
