Imperial Warrior Kerry at State
Kerry was chosen to further America's imperium. He won't disappoint.

Hillary Clinton will leave State. She'll further her 2016 presidential ambitions. She wants to succeed Obama.
She hopes to become America's first woman president. If successful, she'll likely exceed his worst policies. He did what supporters thought impossible. He outdid George Bush. Imagine what's ahead in term two.
Kerry was chosen to further America's imperium. He supports global wars. He'll differ from Clinton only in style and tone. Longstanding policies won't change.

In November 1984, Kerry became junior Massachusetts senator. He succeeded Paul Tsongas. He stepped down for health reasons.
In 1992, his Democrat presidential nomination efforts failed. In January 1997, he succumbed to pneumonia and liver failure complications from cancer.
