Blast from the Past: (2008) : Obama's Foreign Policy

"The new [Obama] administration should also not give overseas audiences the false hope that its arrival on the world scene will mean a sudden, drastic departure from the policies of Bush, despite his low reputation at home and abroad. The American political system, which leads presidential candidates to adopt 'centrist' positions, leaves the options

for restructuring American foreign policy limited. This includes Iraq, a fiasco that will take years to settle."
