On the cover of this week’s edition of Pat Buchanan’s American Conservative, Hillary takes fire from another direction: The anti-war, anti-Israel right, to whom her support for her husband’s interventions in the Balkans seem particularly damning, as does her hard line on Iran. The cover story’s author, the libertarian Justin Raimondo, seems to want to make a kind of isolationist common-cause with the Left:
What does Hillary want? A smarter, smoother, better-planned interventionism, one that our allies find more amenable and yet is, in many ways, more militant than the Republican version — one that “levels with the American people” about the costs of empire and yet doesn’t dispute the alleged necessity of American hegemony. As she finds her voice as a would-be commander in chief, it isn’t one the traditional Left in this country will recognize. Hers is not the party of Eugene McCarthy but of the neoconservative [Marshall] Wittmann.
