The Current Discussion: In their campaign, should Barack Obama and running mate Joseph Biden advocate a clean break in U.S. foreign policy, or should they rely on continuity and experience?
Obama and Biden need to give foreign affairs a new perspective and a new direction. The greatest gift that an Obama administration can give the world is consistency. America's foreign policy should equate to its domestic policy. Whatever is good for Americans should be good for the rest of the world. Human rights, civil rights and personal freedoms should be advocated both within and without U.S. borders.
