agrements alone. Power extends from the base up, without the
drawbacks of populism and majoritarianism.

different view, Clinton a third view and Bush 2 a 4th view of the
world. Some nations feel they can not count on the US to maintain an
agenda. Swapping as often as weekly would only make things many times
