I voted for McCain, but I’m assuming Obama will win. I know he’s not
lurking on arf.genius.amps sifting through all the trollery for
advice, but if he asked, here are a couple of ideas:
1. Pick a good cabinet. Bush43 had a lot of unqualified people in his
cabinet, and even his Yale degree wasn’t enough to make up for it. You
can only be as good as your cabinet.
2. Make your cabinet picks agree to stick with you for 8 years. Every
president in recent memory who served two terms had a worse second
term than their first. I think part of the reason for this is that the
cabinet takes off to write books, hit the lecture circuit or host a
news show on TV. The second terms of Reagan, Clinton and Bush43 are
all excellent examples of this. They were riddled with scandals and
misdeeds at the highest levels. Regardless of what you think of these
presidents, some of this wouldn’t have happened if the first stringers
were still playing.
Republicans for cabinet positions and that, more importantly, he'll pick
independent-minded people who aren't afraid to tell the Prez when they
think he's full of crap and why.
I voted for Obama largely because he comes across to me as a person whoIMHO, he's flat out the best choice. And if he wins (which he will), it will only be because voters that voted Republican in the past recognized him as the better choice... For our country, at this point in history.
can listen to all sides of an argument and come to a decision without
relying excessively on quasi-religious dogma. But he still needs to get
the right people around him.
The reason many conservatives vote democrat is because the democrat party in general is more conservative. Look at Clinton. But don't try to explain that to some republicans. They don't get it.
Yup. Opposing their leader = radical leftism.
