Don’t kid yourselves; from the Islamic State to Ukraine to Iran, foreign policy mattered in Tuesday's elections.
"They" say elections rarely turn on foreign policy. And mid-term elections, "they" say, are almost never a referendum on the president. Well, take that, whoever "they" are. This election turned on foreign policy big time. But not the way you might think. Foreign policy was not on the ballot; nor is the United States losing a war or in a titanic struggle somewhere.
