It appears that both Obama AND Clinton are not doing well “restoring” America’s image with the international community, according to this Newsweek article.
Best line (emphasis mine):Â
“A senior Latin American diplomat, who asked to remain unnamed because of the sensitivity of the topic, says, “Look, we’re all watching Obama with bated breath and hoping [his election] will be a transforming moment for the world. But now that we’re listening to him on tradeâ€”the issue that affects us so deeplyâ€”we realize that maybe he doesn’t wish us well. In fact, we might find ourselves nostalgic for Bush, who is brave and courageous on trade and immigration.”
Ouch.Â That’s going to leave a nasty mark!

UPDATE (from Dan):Â And let’s not forget the Canadians and Mexicans concerned about Obama’s desire to renegotiate NAFTA and Hillary’s newfound opposition to that job-creating treaty. Hearing these two go on against NAFTA is making our neighbors wonder about American commitments to treaties we’ve signed. And not just our neighbors.
