Barack Obama hasn’t been much of a domestic-policy president from nearly anyone’s point of view. And it’s a little hard to picture how he might ever be seen as such—that is to say, even if he’s reelected, he’ll probably have a Republican House or Senate (or both) that will thwart him at every turn, so the best he’ll be able to say is that he presided over a slow and very difficult economic recovery, which presumably will finally happen by January 2017. But foreign policy could be a completely different story. Here one can see how he might become not just a good but a great foreign-policy president.
Gee, who’s in charge of foreign policy these days? Isn’t it whats-her-name, that old lady that tried to steal the nomination from Obama? You know, the one who kept schooling him during their debates. The one whose paper he copied off of.
