Molnar reasserted Hungary’s constitutional identity. Scott McConnell stepped over Egypt’s slide to praise Middle East democracy, and Kelley Vlahos asked if Charles Krauthammer is satisfied with Egypt. Daniel Larison assessed the election’s impact on U.S.-Russian relations, viewed threats and allies, rejected the idea that Romney neglects foreign policy debate, cautioned Obama not to be like Putin, and liked Rand Paul a little more.
