I hope that Obama reevaluates the U.S.'s foreign policy with Israel, making them earn our alliance more. I also hope that Obama puts more of an emphasis on soft power in his foreign policy, and I want him to focus on alleviating severe poverty in developing countries for strategic and humanitarian purposes. The Borgen Project has good info on the estimated cost of ending global poverty:

$30 billion: Annual shortfall to end world hunger.
$550 billion: U.S. Defense budget.
