"Obama in Foreign Affairs"

This is mostly boilerplate, as you’d expect given the venue, but choices of emphasis are still interesting. He’s very strong on non-proliferation, UN reform, and the role of institutions. The Iran bit is disappointingly conventional. He seems (quietly) to understand the importance of addressing the Israel-Palestine issue. As with Edwards’ speech, it’s promising but not fantastic.
