Secretary of State John F. Kerry attempted to sharpen the point of the Obama administration's so-called "pivot" to Asia policy here Monday, outlining a vision for what he described as a "Pacific Dream" — not unlike the "American Dream" — in which Asian nations could grow more closely together with each other and the U.S. than ever before on economic and security issues during the decades to come.
