"Dangerous and ill-informed rhetoric about trade . . ."

Fareed Zakaria warns the Democrat candidates that the "rest of the world" -- among which both candidates have promised to renew America's reputation -- doesn't much like their rhetoric on trade:

Already the mood is shifting abroad. Listening to the Democrats on trade "is enough to send jitters down the spine of most in India," says the Times Now TV channel in New Delhi. The Canadian press has shared in the global swoon for Obama, but is now beginning to ask questions. "What he is actually saying—and how it might affect Canada—may come as a surprise to otherwise devout Barack boosters," writes Greg Weston in the Edmonton Sun. The African press has been reporting on George W. Bush's visit there with affection and, in some cases, by contrasting his views on trade with the Democratic candidates'. The Bangkok Post has compared the Democrats unfavorably with John McCain and his vision of an East Asia bound together, and to the United States, by expanding trade ties.

Speaking as a Cardinals fan, I think that the best "trade" was Ernie Broglio for Lou Brock in 1964.
