No doubt, the world wars shifted the balance of power between the U.S. and Great Britain, but the alliance remained strong throughout the Cold War and now the War on Terror. That alliance spawned several durable president/prime minister teams: Eisenhower and Churchill (in his second term as P.M.), Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher, George H.W. Bush and John Major, Bill Clinton and Tony Blair, George W. and Blair, and now Obama and David Cameron.
Obama and Cameron met in Washington last week, continuing the long tradition of U.S/British cooperation. Read on for the third story in my three-part series about the "special relationship" between the two powers.
