John F. Kennedy said in 1961, "On the Presidential Coat of Arms, the American eagle holds in his right talon the olive branch, while in his left he holds a bundle of arrows. We intend to give equal attention to both." Conducting a survey of presidential foreign policy pronouncements from George Washington to George W. Bush, while focusing on World War II and after, Godwin (a political scientist currently serving as Chief International Officer, California State U., Sacramento) finds Kennedy's sentiment, and many others elaborated in presidential speeches and other documents, to represent the "practical idealism" of American foreign policy that has changed little in 200 years, although he clearly views the most recent Bush administration as a significant and lamentable departure.
