More so than even his most illustrious predecessors, Obama was percieved as a great president even before his innauguration. His brilliant rhetoric was designed to restore confidence in domestic policy and improve the United States' image aborad. Nine months later reality has struck. It could be a long time before his foreign policy bears the fruits of his labor. Can we make a provisional assessment of the new administration's foreign policy?
