    IL supporter, American foreign policy did not change when G.H.W. Bush (the competent father) was replaced by Bill Clinton. It DID change - and radically - when GW Bush was appointed. Suddenly the broad based and inclusive foreign policy which had prevailed for centuries was replaced by the policy that the "Unitary Executive" of the United States was empowered to declare that "If you are not with me, you are against us." At that point the idea of rallying allies to a common cause became a matter of "my way or the highway", other nations could only grovel and support, but never influence, American policy. For that matter, anyone in the US who opposed the policy of the "Unitary Executive" was an enemy of the state. Get with the program - Support Bush or your a godless commie Islamofascist terrorist. There is NO other foreign, domestic, or accepted policy.
