Iran's new aggressive moves may make things more difficult for the Obama administration. Iran is an important piece for his foreign politics, well, to show that he will bring change, and a failure in that may trigger other failures as well. Iran being a player in the Middle East, and its effect on other radical Islamists, is a big reason for that too.

And unlike the Bush administration, a change of pace with Russia may also cause some problems ahead (China too). If too many things appear at once, while the current administration needs to give its most focus on the ongoing problems, Obama's first few years may be full of a lot of "I am sorry" headlines. And at some point openly admitting those mistakes may start to trigger negative responses too.
