My next President.


...must be sane, well educated and sensible, and should come from a stable family of non-celebrities. Will have lived long enough to know what it's like to be in trouble, in debt, in love. My candidate will have learned as much from failure as success, and how to dilute ambition's intoxicants from the cold spring of self-satire. This person will know how to listen to all voices, and recognize truth among the agendas. The President for me will run a campaign with no help from any pure political consultants, handlers, drama coaches, party gurus, or advertising types, but will find the sanest, most experienced truth-tellers to provide advice, which the candidate will weigh, listen to his or her heart, then make his or her most truthful, plain-spoken decision. My President will bring the best, strongest, most honest patriots into the White House, people who are allowed to shout back at the President. The President will be a tough, lonely boss, who'll hire the best quickly, and fire them even faster if they turn out to be dishonest, or corrupted by money, or by their own importance. This President will know that it's easy to start something and almost impossible to stop. Like John Kennedy after the Bay of Pigs, this President will admit mistakes and clean up messes in short order. I could go on and on. It's not too soon to start thinking about it. More later.

All of those qualities are in very short order in Washington (both the state and the district) and if they do have them when they get there, I think they lose them very quickly.
