Video of Tom Friedman interviewing President Barack Obama.

This is the whole interview on video, 46 minutes. Not for all, but excellent. Friedman identifies an Obama Doctrine, from strength, engage your enemies in negotiations. Obama has recreated relations with Burma and Cuba. Iran is a bigger enemy to work with. One of the good comments after the op-ed piece points out that this approach echos that of another president, Teddy Roosevelt, who said the US should talk softly, but carry a big stick. Three cheers for our President Barack Obama.

President Obama talks with Thomas L. Friedman about the calculations that informed the Iran nuclear framework and what they say about his overall approach to foreign policy.
