Default Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

It's not about policy, it's about "are you on my side." If an American politician (like Obama) adopted the position of the median Jewish voter, he would be attacked as anti-Israel and lose Jewish support. Obama's mild ME centrism shows this. American Jews (and their friends) want a politician who is more pro-Israel than they might be, just to be safe.
