The more things change, the more they don't

Excellent analysis - Geopolitics rule administrations not the other way around.

Very little change in substance in Foreign Policy.

Changes in rhetoric do not equal change in policy.
Suggest reading the whole thing

Munich and the Continuity Between the Bush and Obama Foreign Policies | Stratfor:

"While the Munich Security Conference brought together senior leaders from most major countries and many minor ones last weekend, none was more significant than U.S. Vice President Joe Biden. This is because Biden provided the first glimpse of U.S. foreign policy under President Barack Obama. Most conference attendees were looking forward to a dramatic shift in U.S. foreign policy under the Obama administration. What was interesting about Biden’s speech was how little change there has been in the U.S. position and how much the attendees and the media were cheered by it."
