Will the next U.S. President “lead from behind” in global affairs as President Obama’s approach has been described? Or should we expect the President after the 2012 election to embrace unabashed American exceptionalism and usher in another American Century? Foreign policy commentators Steve Clemons, Josh Rogin, and Adam Segal, who have been closely watching the presidential candidates and their platforms, give a preview of what to expect from the next administration with an emphasis on the future of U.S. policy toward China and Japan.
