    1. Economics: The US has to compete with the rest of the world. No way around it. We need leaders who are thoughtful and able to negotiate deals and treaties that are good for the country. Many times, they are negotiating with the best minds the other country has to offer.

    2. Military: The US was attacked on 9/11. It took less than a few dozen people to get the man behind that attack. Far fewer than the many, many tens of thousands who died and were crippled from attacking two countries and not getting Bin Laden.

    3. Science and Technology: We need leaders who will promote science and technology. Without those, no one anywhere could possibly say we would be "world leaders"?

    4. America's infra structure: Almost 70,000 bridges and overpasses in America are in need of serious maintenance or they could become dangerous according to a report released Wednesday by Transportation for America. And that's just bridges.
    Report: One in Nine Bridges in America “Structurally Deficient, Potentially Dangerous” | Transportation Nation

    5. Health Care: The CEO of United Health received $744,232,068.00 in stock options. Separate from his regular salary of many millions. The number one cause of bankruptcies is "medical bills". We need leaders who will fight these companies.

    6. The Middle Class: We need leaders who are on the side of the Middle Class.

    Well it is highly difficult living under and assclown that believes he can dictate a socioeconomic environment.

    Its odd why anyone would think that way...

    Anyone knows anything about economics would know you cant dictate an economy or a society but here we have Bozo and his retarded friend Geithner playing jack-in-the box.

    How about a leader who isn't just puppet to International Bankers, the CFR, Tri Lateral Commission, and the Bilderberg Group? Someone who believes in the Constitution, unlike Bush and Obama.

    Based on your criteria... Obama is out. He's spent his entire life in a bubble and on someone else's nickel.

    Why do we need smart and educated leaders?

    Because people like rdean exist and need someone to tell them what to do.
