Signs of the future? Cheney vs. Rangel part III:

"Rep. Charles Rangel yesterday blasted Dick Cheney as a 'son of a bitch' after the vice president said the Harlem lawmaker would raise taxes and destroy the economy if Democrats take control of the House," writes Geoff Earle of the New York Post in one of your must-reads of the day. LINK

"The bitter war of words escalated to the point where the bombastic Rangel even questioned whether the tightly wound Cheney needed professional treatment -- and mocked him for accidentally shooting his hunting buddy earlier this year."

Hillary Clinton's foreign policy speech:

At 1:00 pm ET today at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York City, the Junior Senator from Chappaqua will deliver her fifth -- and final -- "major policy address" of 2006, this time on the very timely topic of foreign policy. For those not keeping score at home, this address joins her previous speeches on the economy, energy, privacy, and rural issues.

Like all H. Clinton speeches, the details of this one will be fluid right up until the time of delivery, but here is what The Note has learned exclusively:

Clinton will argue that the Bush Administration's foreign policy has undermined America's credibility, and left the country increasingly isolated in the face of the new realities of the time and compromised the nation's ability to meet the challenges it faces around the world in Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, North Korea; in thwarting nuclear proliferation; and in combating terrorism.

She will argue for a new foreign policy worldview: one based on bipartisan comity and executed with non-partisan competence. She will go on to outline the principles she believes should underlie a new American consensus on national security and form the foundation for meeting the challenges face by the nation.
