It’s been a long while since I’ve done a bit on bloggingheads.tv, and I’m delighted that on my first visit back I got to discuss American foreign policy with Professor Stephen Walt of Harvard.

We talked about Chuck Hagel’s ouster, how President Obama was “captured” by the foreign policy establishment, and whether it’s even possible for American foreign policy to change course in a material way.

You can see the complete video of our exchange here.

Hey – it beats battling the crowds on Black Friday.
