The re-election of Barack Obama promises continuity in US foreign policy. Over the last four years, however, White House officials have learned painful lessons about the world. They have discovered the limits of the US's ability to reform corrupt or ineffective governments in Afghanistan and Pakistan, to persuade the Palestinians and Israelis to come to the negotiating table, and to blunt rivalry with states like Iran, Russia, and China through heightened engagement. How is Obama likely to adjust to a world which has proven to be more intransigent than he had imagined?
