Who is best suited to become the President of the United States?

Who is best suited to become the President of the United States?
In 2016 the Democratic Party propped up Hillary Clinton to be their candidate for President. They lied, they cheated, they broke rules because she felt it was her turn. She dragged the entire organization along with her for her chance to be the President.
She was an obviously flawed candidate with a history that much of the country didn’t like. With all of her baggage and with her clout within the Democratic party and especially with the big money donors she became the candidate. She lost the election, the two big reasons that she lost were that she was a poor candidate and she stood for nothing, her campaign was mostly that Donald Trump was a dirty rotten bastard. She didn’t offer anything positive to vote for.
As the Democrats start looking for a candidate for the 2020 campaign they have former Vice President Joe Biden, he wasn’t a great candidate when he was in his prime, but if elected he’ll be 78 when he takes office. He’s the leading candidate in the Democratic party. The organization and the donors are going to do their best to tip the scales in his direction to insure that he’s the nominee.
None of these Democratic Candidates are anything to write home about. They’re all professional politicians without any significant accomplishments in their lives. What do politicians bring to the table anyway? What is the best path to get to the White House?
Too Frequently we see politicians become President, they’re the least capable of individuals to handle the job. One of my favorite quotes from General George Patton is “Politicians are the lowest form of life on earth”. A military man like General Patton, or General Eisenhower are far more suited for the office of President than a Politician is.
The job of President is spelled out in the Constitution, it specifies what the President can do, it doesn’t speak much about what the President can’t do and honestly the can do list is pretty short. The Oath of Office says a lot as well.
The Presidential Oath of Office: I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
The President must be able to preserve protect and defend the Constitution. A politician is the least likely person to be able to preserve protect and defend anything.
The Constitution explicitly assigns the president the power to sign or veto legislation, command the armed forces, ask for the written opinion of their Cabinet, convene or adjourn Congress, grant reprieves and pardons, and receive ambassadors.
The job is fairly well spelled out and there is precedent, over 200 years of precedent to go by. To be effective as the chief executive of the country and to be the Commander in Chief of our military you need a variety of skill sets.
President Trump has shown us that you don’t need a history of elected office in order to be effective as the President. (It is my opinion that President Trump has been very effective as President) It’s my opinion anyone with a history of elected positions is unsuited for the job.
I would rather see a candidate who has demonstrated success in a different environment before running for President. We’ve had soldiers, actors, University Presidents, and far too many politicians.
To be effective the President must be a good communicator, the skills must reach across the country and must also work one on one. The President must be persuasive, the communication must lead to gaining agreement or consensus. The President must be able to make deals, when you can’t get a full loaf accepting half a loaf or three quarters of a loaf, may get you closer to your goal depending with what you give up to get it.
Good judgement is also required, being able to see the benefits of accepting half a loaf by giving up something you hold dear and then selling that compromise to the country is important for continued success and for future advances toward achieving the whole loaf.
A solid foundation that the President believes in, that provides credibility with the people who support the President and with other world leaders. Credibility is essential for any leader especially the leader of the free world, the President of the United States is the leader of the free world. Politicians have wobbled too often to earn any real credibility. The President must be a Patriot, and man or woman who loves this country and believes in American Exceptionalism.
The President must be able to get the country to rally around the flag. The military is filled with Patriots, they put their lives at risk defending our flag, they want to follow a Patriot not a weasel with wobbly legs.
To be an effective President you need to be able to communicate and be a Patriot, you must be able to exercise good judgement and you must be able to make good deals good compromises. Success, Goals, real achievements are rarely made in one step, effective leaders must clearly communicate the goals and objectives, and express the path to achieve those goals, then make acceptable compromises along the way to keep moving forward and make steady progress. They must constantly communicate along the way and let everyone know how the goals will be achieved, the obstacles must be identified and clearly communicated. Then those obstacles must be overcome.
How many of the democratic candidates look like they fit this description of an effective world leader? I don’t think any of them do.
President Trump will be reelected by a large margin in 2020.
