Fox-like versus hedgehog behavior in the making and implementation of grand strategy

Historian John Gaddis suggests that strategic leaders as well as strategic theorists can be viewed as “foxes,” “hedgehogs”- or both. What are the advantages and disadvantages of fox-like versus hedgehog behavior in the making and implementation of grand strategy? What is the right balance or combination? Give multiple historical examples from the readings to make your case. Give current examples as well if you like. Refer to relevant strategic theorists such as Machiavelli. Then conclude by offering policy implications for the United States today.
