StratFor is running a free series of article running up to the presidential debate taking place on Friday (after McCain finishes his nap).
Thanks for posting this. I've only just scanned it so correct me if I'm wrong, but the exec summary seems to be that either President would end up with a similar foreign policy because of the constraints that exist on US action, and any difference would be more a product of differences in cunning than philosophy. I checked, and the phrase "Machiavellian virtue" turns up only 582 results on Google. If this is really what you want from a President I must say that I am more convinced than ever that the system of checks and balances are at the heart of our freedom. Frankly, I think the Bush/Cheney team had that in spades, and I think our present candidates are a reaction to that.
