McCain, Clinton, Obama - What does it take to be President of the United States?
Posted Dec 12 2008 7:08pm
This election is shaping up to be the most exciting in history. What does it take to be President? What does experience mean and does anyone running have experience? What about the new commercial - answering the phone at 3:00am, what does this mean to you? Does military experience, gender or ethnic/race background matter, should it matter?
I probably have as much to say about this topic as I do anything else in life right now. I for one think we are fortunate to be experiencing this, a woman and a black man running head to head for President of the United States! Wow!!!
I like McCain's background but I think this country needs something new, different, this country needs what the Democratic Party is offering right now. I don't consider myself a party person, I vote for the candidate and not the party (I think the party system is ridiculous).
Hillary Clinton is a tremendous candidate for president and even more impressive because she is the first woman to take on the historically male position. Her credentials are impressive for anyone running for the position. She is qualified.
Now we come to Barrack Obama. Barrack is a young man, not much experience in politics, bright, charismatic, and has vision.
There are many issues in the Middle East, the majority having to do with Muslims. Muslim men do not respect women. How could Hillary Clinton be effective as President with so much at stake in the Middle East?
Answering the telephone at 3:00am? None of them will be answering the telephone, their cabinet will be doing that. Come on, give me a break!
