Brief Foreign Policy Aside

It's not clear to me whether or not the Iranian election is blow to the Obama administration's view of the efficacy of diplomacy. But it is clear that the transformation of terminology describing Obama's worldview, from "soft power" to "smart power" is incomplete.

The correct formulation should be iPower, no?

I'm generally not a fan of the Obama bashing on here, but "oPower" is freaking hilarious.
