Clinton Foreign Policy = Bush Foreign Policy = Obama Foreign Policy

I have long argued here (and here) that Bush Foreign Policy is not that different from Clinton Foreign Policy. Here is someone else who agrees. I hate Ithaca's NPR station, mostly because they play the most left show (on an already liberal station) I've ever heard on NPR, Democracy Now, which I often wake up to many mornings as my clock radio goes off. It is useful for the different point of view.

In a recent episode, the author is arguing that Bush merely continued the policies of the Clinton administration (extraordinary rendition, unilateral nation building) and it appears that esp with a Clinton under Obama, those policies are likely to continue. Argument again that it is the situation and environment that matters more than president him/herself.
