Obama’s Chess Game with Iran

Those who read this blog regularly know that I'm certainly not afraid to be critical of Barack Obama and his administration when it's warranted. His economic policies scare the hell out of me, and I'm still wondering when he's going to actually do something different than the Bush Administration with regards to Iraq and Afghanistan. But in general, I've agreed with his foreign policy approach. Its humbleness is quite refreshing, especially when compared to cowboy diplomacy of the previous administration. It's much better to engage with those you disagree with than to push them away.
