Obama on the defensive
You know, I think that Joe sometimes engages in rhetorical flourishes. Uh, but, I think that, uh, his core point was that the next administration is going to be tested regardless of who it is because of the fact that we have — uh, the next administration is going to be inheriting a whole host of really big problems. And uh, so, the president is going to be tested. And the question is, will the next president meet that test by moving America in a new direction by sending a clear signal to the rest of the world that we are no longer about bluster and unilateralism and ideology but we're about, uh, creating partnerships around the world to solve practical problems. That's going to be the best way to meet that test. And I have confidence that we will be able to do so.
