On the publication of the 2006 National Security Strategy, Daalder had the following to say about the demise of what he refers to as the "Bush Revolution":

The reversal is clear in the way the strategy shifts the balance from emphasizing force to emphasizing diplomacy, from relying on America's unilateral power to relying on multilateral alliances and institutions, from stressing the need to ensure America's military preeminence to stressing the importance of enhancing our power by working with others.[2]
