This Wall Street Journal "interview" with World Bank president Paul Wolfowitz highlights his idealism. If there's one thing you can say about Wolfowitz, it's that he's an idealist, particularly when it comes to spreading democracy. (I thought his school of foreign policy thought called itself "realism"?) Anyway, an interesting read.

No, Wolfowitz is not a realist. That is the neo-con heresy in Republican foreign policy circles: they have this odd streak of idealism, an idealistic world view (we can perfect the world), uncomfortably wedded to a belief in the use and importance of power, which is the typical realist analytical paradigm.
