Paul Wolfowitz was one of the most infamous hawks of the Bush II era, a deputy secretary of defense who pushed hard both for the Iraq War and, in general, for "democracy promotion" by military means. Now he may be joining the #HawksWithHer brigades.

Interviewed by Der Spiegel, Wolfowitz expresses alarm at Trump's alleged isolationism and confesses that he may vote for the Democrat:

Department of Defense

SPIEGEL: How would the world change if Trump became president?

Wolfowitz: We are already seeing a degree of instability in the world because Obama seems to have consciously wanted to step back. Trump is going to be "Obama squared," a more extreme version of the same thing….

SPIEGEL: Who are you going to vote for in November?

Wolfowitz: I wish there were somebody I could be comfortable voting for. I might have to vote for Hillary Clinton, even though I have big reservations about her.

To read the rest, go here. For more neoconservatives for Clinton, go here. For a reminder that Obama has not in fact "step[ped] back" from the world, go here.
