About this Episode:
In his last year in office, Barack Obama settled past feuds and crafted new alliances. In a brilliant and extensive article in The Atlantic, Jeffrey Goldberg dissected what he called the Obama Doctrine, which involved pivoting to Asia and managing the rise of China.

Some foreign policy analysts argue that Obama put his Asia Pivot policy into effect in 2016 by practicing crafty diplomacy, boosting trade, deepening security ties and increasing “soft power” in Asia. Although Joe Biden served as Obama's vice president, he has not been as committed to the same foreign policy.

Many argue that the Russian invasion of Ukraine has caused US foreign policy to pivot back to Europe. Additionally, the US withdrawal from Afghanistan has upset India, a key potential ally against China — the top Asian power and the biggest challenger to the US.
