ABOUT THE PRESENTATION
In the years since George W. Bush left the White House, a vigorous and often dramatic debate over American foreign policy and national security has consumed the Republican Party. Now, with a historically crowded field of presidential candidates vying for the GOP nomination, that high-stakes battle of ideas is unfolding on the national stage. Next year’s winner could determine the party’s platform—and the international agenda—for a generation to come.
