What are your expectations of a U.S. President?

Here are some of my expectations of a President of the United States (in no particular order). I expect a President to –
1) – consider herself/himself a servant/employee rather than a master/ boss.
2) – be more concerned about the welfare of others than himself/herself.
3) – have the humility to work in the trenches alongside the poor, homeless, and disenfranchised.
4)  – value education and learning for himself/herself and others.
5)  – have a reputation for honesty and fairness with others.
6)  – respect the lives of the people he/she represents.
7)  – take the responsibilities of President seriously.
8)  – be committed to making the world a better place.
9)  – be able to carry on an even-tempered, rational dialogue with other leaders.
10)  – believe in global warming
11) – work to ensure the equal rights of ALL people of the US – regardless of gender, ethnicity, race, religion, non-religion, or age.
12) – know how to laugh at herself/himself.

  1. Unfortch the ruling elite have never given a toss about the fine objectives you’ve mentioned. If one reads beyond received history (I’m a history nerd), one will find that the people who rise to these positions are usually the worst types of people; or they are manipulated by the entrenched power brokers.

    Sigh …
