When debate organizers set up the South Carolina skirmish, they had no way of knowing that the headlines of the week would turn their forum into a much watched exploration of American policy going forward in the war in which we have been engaged for the past decade. Tim Pawlenty and Rick Santorum have been handed a unique opportunity to speak boldy in defense of American military power and the right of the nation to defend itself in the long war.

Such opportunities for clarity and the command of a fleeting national attention span are few and far between. Watch for these two candidates not to miss their chance to speak the truth of the war to the MSM and beyond the Manhattan-Beltway media elite to the GOP primary electorate beginning their assessment of who ought to be their standard bearer in 2012.
