Despite this week's elections, President Obama has the time and scope to do big things over the next two years.In fact, it's odd that Obama has not already devoted more time, energy and attention to foreign policy.If Obama wants significant accomplishments in foreign policy in his last years, he will first need the discipline with which he began his presidency. Obama's biggest foreign policy initiative is powerful, intelligent and incomplete – the pivot to Asia. Obama has postponed two trips to Asia in the past four years.Obama has one other major foreign policy initiative – nuclear negotiations with Iran.If it is, Obama should present Washington and the world with the deal, even though almost any agreement will surely be denounced as treason by Republicans and attacked by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.The historian John Gaddis has described this as one of the most successful reversals of fortune for American foreign policy in modern history.If he wants that kind of legacy, it's time for Obama to become a foreign policy president.
