(Newser) – John McCain plans to introduce Sarah Palin to foreign leaders at the United Nations next week to boost her foreign-policy experience, the Wall Street Journal reports. McCain advisers say they hope the running mate will demonstrate her diplomatic prowess and understanding of foreign-policy issues during the visit Tuesday, the same day President Bush addresses the general assembly.

"The meetings will give her some exposure and experience with foreign leaders," said a campaign strategist, though which leaders the vice-presidential candidate will see is still to be determined. "It's a great idea."
