The New York Times analyzes the network of strategists, policy experts, fund-raisers and donors that John McCain is building up to run for the White House in 2008. It's an impressive team, with advisors like Mark McKinnon, Nicolle Wallace, Gerard L. Parsky, John A. Thain, Terry Nelson, Mike Murphy and many others, from both McCain's presidential bid in 2000 and George W. Bush's campaign in 2000 and 2004. As Gregory Djerejian writes on Belgravia Dispatch, though, some perplexities arise from the field in which McCain is gathering the most known names. It will be hard to elaborate a coherent foreign policy if you have to listen, at the same time, to Colin L. Powell, Brent Scowcroft, Bill Kristol and Robert Kagan.
