"You wouldn't know it by looking at my publishing record, but I have a Ph.D. in political science and international relations. University of Toronto, class of 2000. I worked with some really smart people and then decided that the academic life wasn't for me, and have subsequently become an embarrassment to my family and mentors.
But you can't take the Metternich out of the boy, so I read Foreign Policy magazine's "Foreign Policy Film Festival" with great interest. Stephen Walt and Daniel Drezner each compiled a list of great and not-so great movies that would supposedly teach our Secretary of State and her staff important lessons about how the world works. (Fred Kaplan dissented from many of the choices in a great article in Slate.)"
