“At the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi, California, [presidential hopeful George W.] Bush delivered a much-anticipated first speech setting out foreign policy views on November 19, 1999. Having established that he did not see military intervention as the answer to every problem America faced beyond its borders, Bush closed with, ‘Let us reject the blinders of isolationism, just as we refuse the crown of empire. Let us not dominate others with our power. …And let us have an American foreign policy that reflects American character. The modesty of true strength. The humility of real greatness.’ ”
