        The Presidents - Biography: 11. James Knox Polk

        Billed as the "Manifest Destiny" candidate, James K. Polk laid out his foreign policy and domestic aims early, achieved them in one term, and then declined to run again. Polk negotiated the Oregon territory to the north, and his attempt to acquire California and New Mexico from the south provoked the Mexican War.
