Max Boot’s bar mitzvah speech was unusual: Rather than discuss Torah, it offered an enthusiastic defense of Israel’s 1982 invasion of Lebanon. The 13-year-old seemingly more concerned with public policy than puberty offered a hint of his own future.
Boot, 49, would go on to a successful career as a foreign-policy analyst and historian. Just seven years after graduating from the University of California, Berkeley, he was named op-ed editor of the Wall Street Journal. He was a senior foreign policy adviser for the presidential campaigns of John McCain, Mitt Romney and Marco Rubio. He is currently the Jeane J. Kirkpatrick Senior Fellow in National Security Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, a columnist for the Washington Post and a Global Affairs Analyst for CNN.
Until recently, he was also a Republican.
As he points out in his new book, “The Corrosion of Conservatism: Why I Left the Right,” published last fall, that all changed with Donald Trump.
“I was sure from the moment he made his announcement where he attacked Mexicans and, later, when he attacked John McCain, that he would be rejected by the Republican Party,” Boot told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency. “But then so many Republicans began turning from ‘never Trump’ to endorsing Trump. Still I held out hope that he would lose the election in 2016.”
Boot even endorsed Hillary Clinton — a “deeply flawed” candidate, in his mind, but one who was “extremely knowledgeable, resolutely centrist and amply qualified.”
The day after the election, he went online to change his registration from Republican, which he had been all his life, to Independent.
