Gergen: Obama’s ‘Most Significant’ Foreign Policy Achievement Is Climate Change (NewsBusters)
On Wednesday, David Gergen ranked a supposed foreign policy accomplishment of President Obama higher than the killing of Osama bin Laden during CNN's special coverage of the Democrat's "historic..decision to restore full diplomatic relations with Cuba," as anchor Erin Burnett put it. Gergen contended that "ultimately, he's going to be judged very favorably by history – not by conservatives today – but by history on climate change. It probably is the most significant thing he's done – the breakthrough he had with China."
The political analyst added that if Obama "can get the world to a better agreement, that's going to go down as a major legacy." He also claimed that climate change is "at the heart of the new foreign policy agenda."
