He assailed free-trade agreements, pledged not to cut government benefits for retirees and defended taking a neutral stance in negotiations with Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

In a remark that could have come from a Ron Paul-style isolationist or a McGovern-style liberal, he answered a question about how to pay for Social Security by casting the country’s military presence overseas as a gigantic waste of resources.
