What effect will events at AIPAC's Policy Conference have on presidential campaigns?

The annual AIPAC Policy Conference is the largest gathering of the pro-Israel movement. Thousands of participants come from all 50 states to take part in “three of the most important days affecting Israel’s future.” The 2012 conference will be held March 4-6, 2012, in Washington, D.C.

Confirmed speakers: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu; Israeli President Shimon Peres; Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY); House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA); Senator Carl Levin (D-MI); Senator Joseph Lieberman (I-CT); Senator Johnny Isakson (R-GA).

How will the early AIPAC Policy Conference this year factor in the Republican Primaries?

In this DemoCast video clip, filmed in Los Angeles in 2010, the current Republican polls leader, Gov. Mitt Romney emphasizes his view of American and Israeli moral exceptionalism.

Republican candidates Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum have been more outspoken about their support of Israel and opposition to political Islamism than Gov. Mitt Romney.

Speaker Newt Gingrich reinforced his Middle East-policy bona fides at this salon appearance following the keynote speech of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at AIPAC '11.
