In general, according to Beigun, Palin had a steep learning curve on foreign issues, about what you would expect from a governor. But she has "great instincts and great core values," and is "an instinctive internationalist." The stories against her are being "fed by an unnamed source who is allowed by the press to make ad hominem attacks on background." Biegun, who spent dozens and dozens of hours briefing Palin on these issues, is happy to defend her, on the record, under his own name.

Perhaps Steve Biegun told her not to worry because it "wouldn’t be on the test."

A word of advice to Biegun: Jocelyn Wildenstein’s plastic surgeon doesn’t have her mugshot posted on the wall in his waiting room for a reason. From a resume standpoint, pointing that you were Palin’s foreign policy guru is like listing "stealing" as one of your hobbies…
