Small, Refreshing Changes

No one can predict the future. The success or failure of the president's strategy can only be proven after the fact. My personal feeling is that his strategy is probably going to be a decided improvement over the past. Leaders of other countries are under no moral or legal obligation to do what we want. By gaining their commitment we will not get everything that we want - but we will get something! I have made four trips outside the country in the past three months. It is so refreshing to experience the positive change that has occurred in the way that people from around the world view the USA.

President Obama appears to be a very articulate individual. However, do not let his calm manner give you the false impression that he is weak and spineless. Just because he doesn't walk around bow legged, with both arms in the "quick draw" positions and suffers from a terminal case of "Wyatt Earp Syndrome" doesn't mean the man does not have a set of balls.
