Obama’s "Change" May Not Apply to Foreign Policy — Which May Be a Bit of a Relief

leave a comment »

Stephen Bainbridge has this post, remarking that Obama’s likely appointments in his national security team may point to a foreign policy similar to Bush I. Bainbridge points to the flaws with the 41st president’s foreign policy, but I would be relieved to know that we are not tossing the entire rulebook under the bus.

Truth be told, I have been a little anxious, but mostly nervous, to see just what would happen with Obama’s professed policy of openness with leaders of nations with which we have a troubled relationship. If it turns out that Obama actually does not regard the entire conservative rulebook in foreign affairs as rubbish, then that might just flip my anxiety/nervous ratio the other way round.
