ABSTRACT
Editorial. Suggests that President-elect Bill Clinton should pay heed to a thoroughbred on the President George Bush team, Defense Secretary Dick Cheney. Cheney has argued that the next administration `will face tougher challenges, more difficult problems...in the international arena.' The United States' commitment in Somalia and Bosnia underscore Cheney's point; Foreign policy must not capture Clinton; America must remain the strongest military power; Other suggestions.
