Obama From the Campaign

Remember that big speech on the night Senator Obama secured the nomination?  An excerpt:

Change is realizing that meeting today’s threats requires not just our firepower, but the power of our diplomacy—tough, direct diplomacy where the president of the United States isn’t afraid to let any petty dictator know where America stands and what we stand for. We must once again have the courage and conviction to lead the free world. That is the legacy of Roosevelt, and Truman, and Kennedy. That’s what the American people want. That’s what change is.

So, where exactly does America stand, and what do we stand for, with Iran? Do Obama’s actions really honor the legacy of Roosevelt, Truman, and Kennedy?
