Whomever is elected to be the next President of the United States of America cannot be elected as a package of expertise. The fact is that there is no such candidate. America must seek leadership rather than presumed expertise and political experience. Leadership is not born within an understanding of the inner workings of government. Leadership is born of clear conviction and understanding. Consider those men which have been held in high esteem within this nation: Washington, Jefferson, Adams, and Lincoln. Those men are considered great today not because they understood how politics functioned but rather because they each possessed a clear vision of what America should be and what role government should play in the lives of free citizens. By today’s standards each would be considered very poor and unlikely candidates for office.
