Morning Update: Examining Annapolis

by campaign2008
December 3, 2007

On CNN’s Late Edition yesterday, Sen. Chris Dodd (D-DE) commented on last week’s Annapolis conference. “Nothing would please me more than to have a two-state solution,” he said. Still, the Bush administration’s lack of attention to that region “has exactly contributed to the kind of problems we’re seeing today, in my view, with Iran,” he said.

Also on Late Edition, Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) responded to McCain’s accusation in last week’s Republican debate that “isolationism is what caused World War II.” McCain was “confused about isolationism versus non-intervention,” Paul said. “I advocate non-intervention, not getting involved in the internal affairs of other nations, and not pretending a country like Iraq is equivalent to Nazi Germany.”

Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) said on Saturday she would oppose normalizing relations with Cuba without a “precondition” (Reuters) of improved human rights practices there.
