Can Obama Improve America's Reputation? (Debate)

12/11/2012 09:35 am ET | Updated Dec 11, 2012

Last week, the Pew Research Center released its annual survey of European attitudes to America. While anti-Americanism has declined in Europe, a large "values gap" remains between Europeans and Americans. Meanwhile, anti-Americanism in the rest of the world seems actually to have increased since 2009, with confidence in President Obama noticeably down, especially in Muslim countries. Will America's reputation and influence abroad improve under Barack Obama's second term? Two foreign-policy thinkers -- András Simonyi, the Managing Director of the Center for Transatlantic Relations (CTR) at Johns Hopkins' Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies; and Conrad Black, author and historian -- debate the question.
