Obama Needs Washington AND Nixon

Conrad Black argues that good intentions alone won't be enough to deal with regimes in North Korea and Iran:
Barack Obama, who quotes Washington and Lincoln with the insight of an historian and not just a leader who has good researchers, could profitably borrow a few pages from Richard Nixon’s playbook. The Father of the Nation and the Saviour of the Union, for all their travails and distinction, never had to deal with such unfeasible characters as Ahmedinejad and Kim Jong-Il.
