There seems to be a large disconnect between US President Barack Obama and the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, especially on foreign policy positions. From Clinton’s realpolitik views to Obama’s humanitarian and democratic goals, the two seem to be talking-up different agendas. US Democratic Congressman Dennis Kucinich from Ohio explained both need to look at common sense principles. These principles are based on all humanity not individual nations; everyone must be empowered, he argued. Notions like the invasion of Iraq are an example of realpolitik where true principles were set aside by America.
