John Kerry for President?

In recent news, Secretary of State John Kerry has said that he has not ruled out a run for the Presidency in 2016.  His last attempt was in 2004 when he lost to President George W. Bush.  If he were to run, his greatest challenge would be the person he placed as Secretary, Hillary Clinton.  There have only been six Secrataries of State who have gone on to become President.  They are:

Thomas Jefferson
James Madison
James Monroe
John Quincy Adams
Martin Van Buren
James Buchanan 

That’s right.  The last one was Buchanan, who served as President from 1857 to 1861.

That leads me to this poll question.
