Albright and Gingrich on American Foreign Policy

Charlie Rose Tuesday aired a couple of interesting conversations with Madeleine Albright and Newt Gingrich. He asked them what advice they would give the next president about U.S. foreign policy. One area of agreement: improve America’s image abroad, and learn to work better with other countries, where possible.


“We have in many ways now come across as a bully.”

“The biggest problems . . . are ones that require even a country as powerful as the United States to develop partnerships with other countries.”


“We have to practice listening at levels we do not understand as a country.”

“We have to understand that unless we can bring the planet along with us, we are inevitably planting the seeds of some kind of anti-American coalition, just out of desperation, because we crowd everybody every day.”
