Obama vs. McCain on Diplomacy

    The past seven years have been marked by an administration that has valued unilateralism and ignored the rest of the world. American cooperation with the rest of the world and, as a result, the U.S.’s standing in the world has drastically decreased over this time. Unfortunately, this has left the world’s most devastating global problems unaddressed.
    In an effort to ameliorate such problems, the next president must work to engage the international community. This will involve a wide range of diplomatic efforts. This article seeks to examine the presidential candidate’s statements and positions on diplomacy, and their likely policies as president.
