US Foreign Policy under Obama book
It’s easy to read into a political figure one’s own hopes and desires, especially in the case of a charismatic personality such as Barack Obama. I may be doing some of it here. In policy discussions, the descriptive easily slides into the normative. Obama’s more passionate supporters may be disappointed that he is not as “transformative” as former Secretary of State Colin Powell predicted. His election alone has transformed US politics; let us not expect much more.
