Dear Governor Bush:
The odds look high that we'll be calling you president-elect soon, so we'd like to clarify some of your ideas about a Bush foreign policy.
Or, should we say, some of your advisers' ideas.
We know few voters punched the hole next to your name on account of your expertise on global matters. But the whole world, not to mention the American public, is watching to see whether you have the heft to steer the sole superpower into the 21st century.
And, to tell the truth, after your wobbly performance over recent weeks, the jury is definitely out.
It isn't just that you have no foreign policy background. Another Southern governor was also short on that kind of experience when he was elected eight years ago, although no one doubted his ability to master any subject to which he turned his full attention.
