"Outside of communism[?] he continued his Rockefeller Foundation ideas of aid to developing nations and also supported low tariffs to encourage world trade." Surely that sentence is incorrect. Anyone care to change it?

Counterpoint to McNamara?Edit

The article reads "As Secretary of State he was consistently hawkish," which is as true as far as it goes. However, Rusk cautioned LBJ about the dangers of engaging Vietnam, often in contrast to McNamara. This would be worth mentioning. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Quigonpaj (talkcontribs) 01:57, 12 November 2007 (UTC)

Second longest serving?Edit

Jefferson, Madison, and JQA all served two full Presidential terms as Secretary of State as well.

Jefferson did not - he served only four years or so. Adams didn't start service until September of 1817, because he was serving in England when appointed. Madison apparently did not take office until May of 1801. And Rusk would appear to beat William H. Seward by a single day (Seward served March 5, 1861 to March 4, 1877) and Hamilton Fish by a few days more than that. So the order would appear to be 1) Hull (11 years, 8 months, 26 days); 2) Rusk (8 years); 3) Seward (7 years, 11 months, 27 days); 4) Fish (7 years, 11 months, 23 days); 5) Madison (7 years, 10 months, 1 day); 6) Adams (7 years, 5 months, 3 days); 7) John Hay (6 years, 9 months, 2 days); 8) John Forsyth (6 years, 8 months, 2 days); 9) George Shultz (6 years, 6 months, 4 days); 10) John Foster Dulles (6 years, 2 months, 26 days); and 11) James Monroe (5 years, 11 months, 2 days). I think everyone else has been held to under five years. john k (talk) 22:55, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

Exact birthplace ?Edit

Cherokee county is big. It counts more than 400 sq m. Isn't it possible to give the exact birthplace ? - Thanks ! --129.187.244.28 (talk) 08:46, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

Removing Red Skull (comic book) referenceEdit

I am going to take out the reference to Rusk being revealed as a disguise of the Red Skull. Even ignoring issues of propriety, it's not correct even in the comic book it refers to.
