Albright on U.S. foreign policy (cnn)


When America elects a president, the world watches. And Tuesday, it is the candidates' turn, as they wait with baited breath for the outcome. According to CNN's latest poll, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are tied in their quest for the popular vote. The outcome in the electoral college is far from certain.

What's also unclear is whether American foreign policy change will change, whether or not a new president takes office.

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright knows exactly how tough it is to make foreign policy priorities and decisions. She has been campaigning for President Obama, and has kind words for her fellow Democrat on his approach.

What honour did she receive? And for what? What services has Shahbanou rendered to France?

I know Sarkozy made Salma Hayek a Knigh, so are we to believe Shahbanou received such a high distinction for being equally useful to society?

Some One said Obama referred to the Late Shah as a Dictator

Is that true?  Does Anyone know?

It would be a funny story if true, coming from a President that unconstitutionally gave himself the power of a dictator.
