Because his ‹ndings appear to be consonant with Kingdon’s (1989), Carter concludes that the president is not very in›uential and that foreign policy-making is more similar to domestic policy-making than different. However, the two sets of ‹ndings are not that comparable. Carter does not measure success on domestic policy, and the success rate on foreign policy he ‹nds is 65 percent, which is much closer to Wildavsky’s (1966) ‹nding of a 70 percent success rate for foreign policy than to Wildavsky’s 40 percent success rate for domestic policy.
With the lament that no single theory accounts for this phenomenon, they refer the reader to Klingberg’s (1952) theory of mood swings in the American public. Klingberg (1952) does not speci‹cally explain congressional behavior. He does say that at any given time, a dominant mood encompasses the administration and Congress as well as the electorate (239). What is most important about his analysis is that it attempts to explain long-term cycles in political behavior. The mood of the public on foreign policy through history alternates between isolationist (introvert) and internationalist (extrovert) tendencies.
