In our President being so hell-bent on vacating our world leadership roll, obviously he envisions our successor will be as ecumenical, as benevolent, as staunch an advocate of human rights and liberties as we are? Sure he does! Let me see who could that successor be, China; maybe Russia, obvious candidates of course? Perhaps the UN could fill the void as a New World Order advocate? Now there are candidates worthy of serious consideration judging by their record alone, wouldn't you say? And if any of you are thinking "isolation" as an alternative, get real!
