Foreign Policy Issues in the 1992 Presidential Election
1992 is remembered as the first post–Cold War election, fought primarily on domestic issues, when Bill Clinton overturned the high approval ratings enjoyed by President George H. W. Bush in the wake of victory in the Gulf. Clinton’s victory is conventionally ascribed to a combination of domestic issues, luck, and the candidacy of Ross Perot. This chapter will consider and broadly endorse these conventional points but will also demonstrate the degree to which the campaign involved the airing of major themes and tendencies within emerging US post–Cold War foreign policy.
