    Everybody that has ever been President of the United States had to decide one day to run for that office. How, and why, does somebody make that decision? Does it happen one day when they are in the shower washing their manhood? Do they run for President just to get their mother to quit nagging them about "doing something with your life"? Do they do it simply to appease their wives? Do they think that at some point in American history they will be featured upon our currency or a coin? Why? What's the thought process? I think a person has to have a certain kind of large ego to run for President. There isn't a school to attend to learn how to become President. No OJT. Leadership skills are a plus and not all Presidents have been great leaders. Regardless, there comes a moment in time when a person makes the decision to run for President. I wonder what, or when that moment happens....
