Foreign policy a utilitarian could love

So this is all at a pretty high level of abstraction, but these Truman Project people are saying exactly what I want to hear. I feel a bit funny about the American Exceptionalism part, but as long as it's understood as conditional on our behaving better than everyone else, I'm okay with it. Plus, it's important for winning elections.

[Update]: I also like the fact that they analogize us to a foreign policy superhero. I have yet to hear one of the bad guys quoting Uncle Ben.
