Beck, Palin, Romney even Ann Coulter are all now sounding like avid Ron Paul supporters, although seldom giving credit where it is due.
Glen Beck has been making headlines for himself recently by denouncing the Republican party and
making statements that he would have voted for Hillary Clinton over McCain. He even went so far as to draft five pledges a candidate should make in order to show himself "for the people". However, a close inspection of these pledges reveals that either Beck does not "get it" or he is a spokesman for the current Republican party which is desparate to regain its conservative support.

Sorry, but I have never heard the reference from the media. It was my own take from listening to HIM.
Apology accepted. :) Don't worry, a lot of people get confused about the differences between isolationism and non-interventionism. It's an easy mistake to make, especially because the media does have such a big hand in grooming how people understand these terms.
Non-interventionism was the vision of America's foreign policy from the founding of this country, and there is no telling how much hardship we could have avoided as a nation if we had only adhered to their wise counsel. To further clear up any misunderstandings you may have had about Dr. Paul, here is a column he wrote several years ago making the distinction: http://www.house.gov/paul/tst/tst2006/tst121806.htm
