Bleeding Heartland: Thoughts On Obama's Foreign Policy Forum

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

Judgment was the key word at the forum. The three advisors that were
there discussed Obama's judgment and his ability to unite the country
on foreign policy (unity used to be the status quo in Congress and has
lately been divided b/t red and blue). They also talked about his
ability to rebuild America's image so that other countries' leaders
will not have to sacrifice political points at home when they choose
to work with the United States. Sarkozy was an example of this. He
came in to power in France wanting to work with the United States but
because the United States had ruined its image (its soft power) in the
world, it became a political risk for him to work with the US.
