Palin visits AIPAC, promises to strengthen U.S.-Israel ties



Just days after John McCain plucked Sarah Palin as his running mate, the Alaskan governor paid a visit to AIPAC to voice her support for Israel, something she definitely needed to do because of her support for Pat Buchanan’s 2000 presidential campaign.

Unlike McCain and Barack Obama, who dueled at AIPAC’s policy conference in June, Palin offered no sweeping statements regarding Jerusalem or Israel’s threat from Iran. She settled for the much more diplomatic commitment to “work to expand and deepen the strategic partnership between U.S. and Israel.”

Every legitimate candidate pays such respect to AIPAC and the U.S.-Israel relationship. But does she mean it? Considering McCain’s record, I’d imagine so.
