1/13/10: The Carter Syndrome

Historian Walter Russell Mead says Obama needs to reconcile his inner Thomas Jefferson and his inner Woodrow Wilson. (c) Foreign Policy Magazine

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, Utah – In the current issue of Foreign Policy Magazine, historian Walter Russell Mead says that when it comes to foreign policy, Barack Obama could end up being another Jimmy Carter. Mead says that Obama is "neither a cold-blooded realist nor a bleeding-heart idealist," and in the end, if he doesn't reconcile the two impulses, it could tear his presidency apart. Wednesday, Walter Russell Mead joins Doug to talk about The Carter Syndrome.
