We will never get the full, believable truth about what each man would do after November. But the candidates should be pressed to reveal more about their differences. Is Obama planning to renew his push for Israeli-Palestinian talks? Does Romney truly believe that is pointless?
What about Syria? What does Romney plan? And how can Obama explain America's strangely disengaged stance? Does Romney really intend to antagonize Russia and China?
On that March day in Seoul, Obama accidentally revealed one of the dirty secrets of any campaign. Voters already knew that words and deeds on an election year are affected by the push to win votes. It is a challenge for voters, and journalists, to push back for answers.
