It is impossible to know whom American voters will choose as their next president.It also reflects the near-certainty that the next president will inherit a world in considerable turmoil.The Republican side is far more crowded and uncertain, and it seems far likelier that foreign policy will play a large role in choosing the party's nominee.Many – but not all – of the Republican candidates back the Trans-Pacific Partnership; the politics on the Democratic side is more hostile to the deal, making it potentially risky for any Democratic candidate to support it.Democratic candidates are more likely to be sympathetic to whatever is negotiated; but there are certain to be differences among candidates on both sides.If one thinks of national security as two sides of a coin, with foreign policy on one side and domestic policy on the other, how likely is each to land face up for the next president?Along the way, Americans will gain a better sense of whom to vote for, and people everywhere will develop a better sense of what to expect in January 2017, when the 45th U.S. president takes the oath of office.
A distracted America is one less likely to stabilize the world
Just ‘showing up’ is 80 percent of foreign policy success
For a sense of Putin’s actions grasp their long-term implications
