Gateway Pundit offers some breadcrumbs that lead to The Weekly Standard. Juicy tidbits:
Petraeus will also be addressing the commissioning ceremonies for Harvard and MIT ROTC. THE WEEKLY STANDARD has learned that General Petraeus is planning on delivering the commencement address at the University of Iowa in 2010. Hmmm.It seems like the POTUS and VP need to have a good balance of domestic/foreign policy chops. Palin/Petraeus 2012, anyone?
Besides the speech itself, the other interesting thing will be watching the Frum/Douthat/Brooks Axis of Wobbly try to explain that the classical American values which a Petraeus will likely espouse are somehow passed into history. Trade courage for nuance, freedom of action for the warm arms of the state, the traditions that made you strong for some nebulous abstraction.
Even if the schedule changes in the next year, and Petraeus doesn't actually make this speech, the good General has already made my day.
