When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become President. Now I’m beginning to believe it.
Frankly, I don’t know about you, but I don’t want a president that’s just like the people. I don’t want a President that’s done drugs, a President that hates school as much as most of us, or a President that doesn’t read and watches TV all day. I want a President that’s been faced with the possibility of drugs and overcome it. I want a President that hates schooling as much as us, but only because they love learning that much. And I want a President that reads, that’s learnt to focus in an ADD world, and one who uses their time wisely. I want a President that understands the people, yes, but I want one that’s better than the people. I want a president that’s the embodiment of how good a person can be if they just tried.
Bringing the President down to our level isn’t something we should be proud of. Our mediocre level is quite horrible.
