93 - The Conservatives

While out of power, a host of conservative thinkers and strategists continue to argue their corner, demanding a more muscular American foreign and security posture. Eliot Cohen (pictured), the director of strategic studies at the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University, has influenced generations of students at one of the nation’s leading security programs. Other vocal Bush Pentagon alumni include former comptroller Dov Zakheim and policy chief Doug Feith, Eric Edelman, Seth Cropsey and Bryan McGrath, two former naval officers, have joined forces to launch a new sea power center at the Hudson Institute to advocate for a larger American fleet, while AEI’s Tom Donnelly and Fred Kagan argue for land power.
