Tomorrow On CQ Radio: Charles Hill

Earlier this week, Rudy Giuliani announced the expansion of his advisory staff with new appointments on foreign policy. Among the distinguished new members of the staff are notables such as Norman Podhoretz, one of the original conservative thinkers and writers, as well as being the father of our friend at NRO and the New York Post, John Podhoretz; former Wisconsin Senator Bob Kasten; and Martin Kramer, the scholar and expert on Middle East studies, among others. The choices show Giuliani tilting to a solidly conservative national-security approach to foreign policy, undoubtedly intended to assure the GOP base about the direction of a Giuliani presidency.

The man in charge of the group, Charles Hill, will join me tomorrow morning at 10 am CT. Hill has served under George Schultz at State during the Reagan administration, following an extraordinary career in the foreign service that put him in the world's hot spots for 20 years: Viet Nam, Israel, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and other assignments. Hill also served the UN as a special advisor to then-Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali. We'll ask him about Rudy's policy direction, how Rudy will approach the issues in various hot spots of the world, and about Hill's own remarkable career.

Don't miss this show, and call in with your own questions!

Iraq, Iran, NoKo, China . . .
These are the reasons we have a President, and why choosing carefully among Presdidential candidates matters so much. Rudy is putting together a conservative, tough group of foreign policy advisors. NPod, great pick. I'm impressed.

Rudy is putting together a conservative, tough group of foreign policy advisors.

Maybe he is. But the people listed above don't meet that description. They are not tough, and they certainly are not conservative.

Being a founder of the neo conservative group certainly does not qualify Norman Poderetz as "one of the original conservative thinkers". Some question whether it qualifies him as a conservative.
