Michael Allen at Democracy Digest points to a thread at the CFR Forum in which Peter Beinart asks the house: “how central is the promotion of liberal democracy to a liberal foreign policy?”

“Does a liberal foreign policy have to make democracy and human rights central to America’s relationship with, say, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Iran, China or North Korea? Or can liberals comfortably say that questions of domestic, regional and international security take precedence given America’s lack of influence, and perhaps lack of wisdom, when it comes to the internal affairs of other states?”

Michael Allen also has a good run-down of the responses so far, from the likes of Will Marshall, Matt Yglesias, and Anne-Marie Slaughter.
