    There are many traits that we all look for and admire in our leaders. If they don't have these traits then the chances are they won't win and they'll have to go to work like the rest of us. These traits are not listed in order of importance but each one is important none the same.

    1. Do you like the person?

    This is usually the number one trait need to be successful in politics. Most of the voters must like you personally. If they like you they tend to overlook any faults you may have.


    2. Do you trust them?

    This is almost as important as the first but it seems in some people's minds it doesn't matter as much as being a winner does. Being trustworthy is important but winning tends to overrule trust in some people's minds.


    3. Do they make you feel safe?

    I know this is a big one but it is secondary to the other two. It really depends on how you feel about yourself and your place in the world. Do you feel that there are threats out there and if you feel it's the case does it seem like they're on the case? Are you afraid of threats outside the country or within? This will determine who you vote for.


    4. Do they listen to you?

    It's important to be in touch with the folks. If they give you the impression that they feel they are better then you do you think they will get your vote?


    5. Are they competent leaders?

    If a politician seems spineless chances are they won't get your vote....but this all depends on what you feel is spineless. Do they stick to their guns? Do they act like they know what they're doing? Do they bend with the wind or stand up to everything that's thrown at them...and take it with class?


    6. Do they believe in what you believe?

    This one tends to overrule many of the others. It's kind of hard to vote for someone who believes in abortion when you don't. It's also as hard to believe in a politician who likes to raise taxes when you feel you're overtaxed already.


    Now ask yourself these questions. Ask them about Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, or anyone else.

    If most or not all of the answers are NO then chances are that person is in serious trouble come November. Some people will get only one yes and still vote for a candidate because that trait is more important then all of the others.

    Anyone who wants to discuss why the politician in question gets a no or a yes....feel free.

    In all honesty I truly believe that the last trait is all that matters to the left when you really get down to it.

    They don't need someone they can trust nor someone who makes them feel safe. They don't even need someone who's competent...because that can be explained away.

    They only care about their ideology.

    Make the rich pay a price for their greed

    Spread their wealth around

    Be kind to everyone but Americans

    Give us a good show but it doesn't really matter if it's true or not cause that's not important

    Interesting. I'd like to add another;

    7. Who does this person "pal around with"?

    Had this been fully examined in 08 we wouldn't be such a divided country today.

    People are judged by the company they keep. Or should be.

    The mid terms will be interesting.

    It's easy....Obama pals around with terrorists, racists, criminals, communists, you name it.

    If the truth about these associations were made clear Obama wouldn't have had a chance in hell of getting elected. That is if the MSM actually did their jobs for once.

    1.) The Ayers, Wright, and Soros connections have already been more than talked about. The truth of those connections are out there.

    2.) Czar is just another word for Advisor.

    3.) I can count least two racists on your friends list here at USMB, should you be considered to be "paling" around with racists?
