The Weekly Standard on Bush's foreign policy

Stephen Hayes writes on the consistency of Bush's foreign policy:
Six months ago, foreign policy experts were dancing on the grave of the Bush Doctrine. Since then we've seen successful elections in Afghanistan, Ukraine, the Palestinian Authority, and Iraq, a renewal of the Mideast peace process--and, of course, the reelection of George W. Bush over his neorealist rival.

The Bush Doctrine would seem to be alive and well.
Robert Kagan and William Kristol second the concept:
President Bush never accepted the notion that Iraqis or other Arab or Muslim peoples are not "ready" for democracy. As a result millions of Iraqis (and Afghans) have now voted.
