In fact, the administration has the opportunity to fill in one of the great missing pieces of that policy – a strategic relationship with the continent's second largest country, India – once a new government is formed in New Delhi.The immediate obstacle for the United States is that the man who will become India's next premier, Narendra Modi, was placed on a blacklist of sorts by the George W. Bush administration, was denied a visa to enter America, and has been shunned by U.S. officials for a decade. If the U.S. can shift policy on this matter, Modi will have to get over his irritation with America.The result is that India has shied away from the kind of robust relationship with the United States that would help it economically, militarily and politically.If the U.S. and India, the world's oldest and largest democracies, can create a genuine partnership, it will be good for Asian stability, for global prosperity and, most especially, for the cause of democracy and human rights around the world.
