President Roosevelt

President Roosevelt has stated that he will continue the policies of William McKinley but his personality will likely lend itself to an active foreign policy. The general public's impressions of Roosevelt are discussed as are international politics. McKinley's final speech is quoted with his expectations for American prosperity and international trade. This is contrasted with Roosevelt's "Americanism" and predictions that he will "out Monroe Monroe" in the interpretation of the Monroe Doctrine.
