On Halloween night, the European Commission -- Europe's "executive" -- changed. At the helm of foreign policy, Lady PESC -- as Catherine Ashton was known -- gave way to Mrs PESC, as Federica Mogherini prefers to be called. Two different women leaders, two leadership styles in foreign policy.
Because of their lesser interest in foreign policy, the American people are not isolationists. They are simply open-minded, subject to persuasion by their political leaders.
Technology is a pathway to knowledge, and it is knowledge that will ultimately curb extremism and promote pluralism in the region.
