Default Re: Squeaky Clean Edition (Robert Wright & Ramesh Ponnuru)

The correct answer to Ramesh's question here is "way more worried." Democracy is great, democracies are the best partners to work with, but at the end of the day governmental legitimacy matters less in this particular scenario than governmental capacity and authority. You pretty much couldn't find a worse state structure for a nuclear candidate than "democratizing."
