On Paul being to the "left" of Obama...

Paul's position on foreign policy was implied to be to the "left" of Obama's in the final debate before the Iowa caucuses. While the left/right dichotomy is largely meaningless given the bipartisan commitment to interventionism, couldn't a case be made that Paul has the only "right" foreign policy? Paul could have pointed out that the current neoconservative republican candidates are running on the same foreign policy as Woodrow Wilson, FDR, Truman, and Johnson ...that of Machiavellian intrigue, nation building, and entangling alliances.
