So before I tell you who I would feel is a great president, or presidential candidate I want to go over what we shouldn’t see in a president. As I’ve seen I a post out of the Washington post, the running of a new president in the year 2018 have set very low standard of what a president should be. There are three so called front runners, so Donald Trump thinks you are nothing more than a cog in the machine and Bernie Sanders thinks you are perpetually in debt to the machine. Now for Hillary Clinton, whose delusions of grandeur have convinced her after years and years of suck-ups and sellouts that she actually is the machine. These three have not shown yet on what a really presidential candidate, that is why I’ll never see them as a president. So I’ll give you my thoughts on how a president should look like while also give examples of past presidents that to me have done a splendid job for their people and this country. For most I feel that the American president should be Libral, open to new behavior or opinions and willing to discard traditional values. Old is great but sometimes new is better, but we still must have balance. Some presidents were loved by many people and barley accomplished anything in office, Others made fantastic decisions and or improved our economy. The president I want in office has to make a statement that he is there for the people and to help America whether his power is limited or not. Intelligence is an important and obvious thing that our leader should have, the ability to make realistic policies and decisions is very important. Extensive knowledge of the American political system is needed; you can also include good public speaking skills. Now this next one is tough but honesty is what a president... ... middle of paper ... ... Also there is always room to grow, meaning being thankful for what they achieved, but still trying to do a little more. The president values must include courage, which is the will for our leader to press on. To do what is right and to overcome obstacle even when afraid. He must also have confidence which is the unshakeable belief in yourself that you can make happen what you want to happen. Allows the president to keep trying until you get better, to seek help and advice. The president has to have the ability to separate what is immediately pressing from what is truly important. The last thing a president should have is passion for what they do and what they believe in. They should be constantly enthusiastic, upbeat, and optimistic even when things are not going well. Commitment to a president means throwing yourself into whatever you do with everything you have.
