Madeleine Albright wants more God in America's foreign policy

In case you haven't been following an interesting conversation in the comments below, Hefe stated, "So you are for a theocratic foreign policy? Isn't that what conservatives get blasted for, in the arena of domestic policy?"

Gurufrisbee and The Old Man both responded. An even heavier voice in international politics has weighed in as well. Madeleine Albright has written a new book, The Mighty and the Almighty: Reflections on America, God, and World Affairs, and spoke for about an hour on C-Span's Book TV. I can't find a transcript, but the audio file from iTMS can be found here. Download it and give it a listen.

Secretary Albright wants more God in our foreign policy. She states that all diplomats need further training in how religion effects people's thinking and the world beyond America's shores.

So consider this the thread to continue Hefe's question and ponder Secretary Albright's thoughts. What do you think? More or less God in America's foreign policy?
