Baker's Role in the Bush Campaign
How can the Republican Party put at risk our foreign policy throughout the world?
Secretary of State James Baker has gained the respect, or at least the ability to work with world movers. And now he is trying to keep their man in the White House? Is the government for the people when the stakes of such change are so high?
There was very little mention of foreign policy during the many hours of the Democratic convention.
Yes, the cold war is over, but if the United States wants to keep up its influence in the world community there are more hot spots in the world than ever that need someone who is able to continue being involved.
It seems prudent to keep Mr. Baker as secretary of state, especially for these next several months when the US is embroiled in the presidential election process. Mary Lou Muklhausen, Bethlehem, Pa.
