A

Bill Clinton and George H. Bush believed in the viability of the “new world
order” concept, which presupposed that in the post-Cold War world America will enjoy an undisputed geopolitical dominance. Unlike them, Barack Obama preferred to adhere to the concept of “global governance”, concerned with the idea that international actors will be naturally prompted to cooperate while trying to make this world a better place. Building the “new world order”, on the part of Clinton and Bush, resulted in causing much damage to America’s international reputation, because the concept disregards international law as the only legitimate instrument of managing international affairs. America’s wars in Yugoslavia, Iraq, and Afghanistan did violate this law. Obama’s vision also did not prove particularly workable. By having claimed (in 2015) that Russia’s economy was “in shreds”, he exposed himself as someone who does not understand what is really going on in the world. The main domestic challenge, faced by Bill Clinton, had to do with what is now known as the “Lewinsky scandal”. George H. Bush’s foremost challenge was the rapid increase of the budget deficit under his Presidency. Barack Obama’s major challenge was to find a way to curtail the negative effects of the 2008-2009 financial crisis on the economy.
