The President’s Successs – a new weapon for Hillary Clinton
With the historical opening of relations between Cuba and the United States, as well as a historic agreement with Iran, a potential soft spot could very well be closing, in Hillary Clinton’s otherwise potent foreign policy credentials. It will be a greater challenge for the Republicans to associate her with a faltering foreign policy – that is now getting results.
Analysis: Position of strength
As the 2016 presidential race gets under way, threats loom large around the world. ISIS and a regional contest between Saudi Arabia and Iran dominate the Middle East. The Russian annexation of Crimea in 2014, and its continued involvement in the civil war in Eastern Ukraine has drawn the United States back to Europe. And in Asia, China is increasing its dominant stature towards its neighbors. All these events ensure that national security will become an issue in one way or another in the 2016 race.
