Not true. Instability in US politics concerns everyone on earth, because of American exceptionalism. I remember a slogan from the 80s : "When Ronald Reagan is candidate for president of the US, everyone in the world should get a vote.

... bonus : the last major wars instigated by the USA (Afghanistan, Iraq) were started by a Republican.

To qualify that :

Obama was wise not to intervene in Syria, foolish to follow Sarkozy and Cameron in overthrowing Gaddhafi. Black mark for Democrats.

Clinton intervened in Bosnia to break a stalemate, and it is to his credit. Shame on Europe for not dealing with it when war first broke out between Serbia and Croatia.

Clinton overstepped on Serbia/Kosovo. Another black mark for Democrats.

American exceptionalism has always been bipartisan.  Vast scads of every election consist of the two sides trying to out-exceptional each other.
