Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney speaks to Citadel cadets and supporters on campus Friday in Charleston, S.C. The former Massachusetts governor, known more for his business acumen than his foreign-policy experience, sought to show he has what it takes to be commander in chief.
There is a tradition of Republican presidential candidates laying out their foreign-policy views at The Citadel.
John McCain did it four years ago; George W. Bush did it eight years before that. On Friday, it was Mitt Romney's turn to speak at the South Carolina military academy.
