Let’s hope Kerry does better job than Clinton

If outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton truly believes that U.S. prestige has improved over the past few years, she must be living in a detached “Alice in Wonderland” dream world.

Our embassies still are being bombed and we face terrorist threats on a daily basis.

Likewise, the American people deserve more than a casual “what difference does it make” dismissal of facts when a patriot like Ambassador Christopher Stevens is murdered overseas by homicidal maniacs who probably never will be held accountable.

Let’s hope that John Kerry will pursue a respected and realistic agenda that will bring us some peace of mind in these woefully unsettling times.
