Sure, the world is more than ready for it. After eight years (unfathomable now) of the former blank stare that we chose as our face to the world, things are changing. With the latest new overtures to Russia, Iran, and Turkey, the world now seems more receptive to our leadership. Our partnership. This is all very striking.
It’s even more striking, given the wealth of ‘actionable items’ with which the new administration is faced. You’d be hard pressed to find another incoming President who has so clearly been prepared to move on so many fronts. And given the absolute necessity of quick action on so many levels, I think it’s fair to say that the performance has so far been remarkable.
It’s an overwhelming set of circumstances which seems to have been tackled with gusto and aforethought. Finally. Is it possoble? Have we gotten the government that we’ve always deserved?
