Go foreign it, Bernie!

I agree with Yglesias on this. A remarkable amount of the criticism heaped on Clinton seems to be nothing but bullshit. But the one thing that really does makes me uncomfortable with her as president are her hawkish approach to foreign policy. I have my doubts whether Sanders will still be in the race or will still have a viable path to the nomination by the time we finally get to the PA primary. But assuming I will have a real choice, foreign policy is the one thing that actually could affect my vote.

(Also a real challenge on foreign policy during the primary might cause Clinton to temper her hawkish instincts a bit. Which would just make Clinton a better candidate, IMHO)
