9. Another pressing, urgent, crucial, existential issue: foreign policy and relations. In fact, experts

contend we are closer to a first nuclear war breaking out in one of the many hot spots in the world than ever before in history.

Sadly, Dems are not very concerned about working on anti-nuclear proliferation, addressing historical policy problems in Central America, dealing with the Israel-Palestinian situation, or with what is going on (aside from politically potent issues) between Russia and the US, with NK, Pakistan and India, in the Mideast.

If we do have a nuclear conflict, we will have climate catastrophe, not change, but disaster, and famine, widespread.

I want to know how candidates plan to lead in the world—not only in America—how tackle the existential threat posed by the real potential for nuclear conflict, how help broker peace in the Mideast, how reassure our allies, how relate to our enemies in the wake of Trump’s dangerous foreign policy and relations blunders.

Getting back to the Iran deal might not be as juicy as the Green New Deal, but it should be one of the first pieces of business for a new administration.
