How to select a presidential candidate
February 11, 2008 - Amy Jo Hanna-Eckenrode
I hope you take your right to vote as an incredible privilege only recognized by people of a truly, free democratic society.
The right to vote - to make our voices heard – casting our choice for the person we want to lead our country through the good and the bad… and the ugly.
What a responsibility. How do we process all the vital information about the candidates, the parties, their beliefs, their positions, their voting history? I sometimes feel I could study the candidates for months and still not know all that I should to make such a critical decision.
Well, thank goodness, newsweek.com, has done the homework for us. Their in-depth article, Hail to the Beasts, clues you in on all the creatures that have inhabited the White House (not the human kind) and/or belonged to past/present candidates for this prestigious office.
If this insight doesn’t help you to determine what kind of person the pet owner is, not much will. Even the fact that Clinton had a dog, [almost] makes me look at him in a more respectable, human-kinda light. [almost].
