The AP’s Steven R. Hurst compares President Obama to Mikhail Gorbachev:

While historic analogies are never perfect, Obama’s stark efforts to change the U.S. image abroad are reminiscent of the stunning realignments sought by former Soviet leader Michael Gorbachev. During his short – by Soviet standards – tenure, he scrambled incessantly to shed the ideological entanglements that were leading the communist empire toward ruin.

Umm, how’d that work out for Gorbachev’s country?
