Elevator To The Lobby

Ben Smith writes today in the dead-tree version of the Daily News about the "[endangered] political species with deep roots in New York: the liberal hawk. In certain ways, this is another example of some of the dynamics that are fueling the Lieberman-Lamont race and the role that support for Israel plays in the broader context of America's Middle East policy.

On a related note, the Washington Post's oft-overlooked weekend magazine has an in-depth piece on the
entire question of the "Israel Lobby", the controversial Stephen Walt-John Mearsheimer paper from last spring and related matters.

It's an interesting read and rather balanced look at a very dicey topic.
