"foreign policy" defined

ezra klein says:
Washington’s definitions of “domestic policy” and “foreign policy” haven’t kept up with the real world... “Foreign policy” means, broadly speaking, our policy towards the countries we are already at war with, or are considered likely to eventually go to war with.
the only thing i would add is that "foreign policy" means that plus israel and sometimes also "chinese currency manipulation." i bet there won't be any questions during tonight's "foreign policy" debate that strays far from those topics.
