First, he/she must have the qualifications… of course some of the experience past presidents have had are questionable. For example, it is obvious Bill Clinton had womanizing experience. He apparently also had experience in getting away with scandals. Former Pres. George Bush apparently had experience in getting his way as in invading Iraq. Richard Millhouse Nixon had experience in lying but as it goes with every liar that has ever lived, you eventually get caught.
Harry S Truman got on the job training when the first nuke was dropped. Can you imagine how he must have felt facing such an enormous decision?
How will we remember Obama? Did he have the experience or the right stuff to be commander and chief for two terms? You know, I do not care if he is black, democrat, or a royal liberal. I cannot for the life of me think of one good or decent thing that he has done and I consider myself a fairly intelligent and observant man.
I consider the president’s position the most important one in America. I also wonder how each of these men have affected our country in good and bad ways. I also wonder how different it could have been if Kennedy had not been assassinated or men like MLK had lived a long life. What if McCain had been chosen to sit in that office?
Every man that has sat in the oval office has affected this country in some way regardless of the length of time they were there. We, just regular folk, cannot truly know the day to day stresses of that job. Wouldn’t want it! But, each president has a responsibility to America as a whole and if you let down one group, you let them all down. We have been let down and will see the repercussions of the wrong choice.
All of this said, I believe I have a prediction.
Trump will win the election(seems obvious) and Palin will win VP position. This election will no doubt be historical, pivotal, and will most likely usher in the first woman president simply because it is time just like it was time for a black president.
Time will tell if Trump the billionaire will be made into a US president that affected a nation unlike any other.
