What I'd like to see in a president.

A list of attributes for a President: ( Pick a few from the list not all are mandatory.)
These are in addition to the Constitutional prerequisites.
  1. An understanding of US and World History.
  2. The ability to speak effectively to a large audience.
  3. A professional appearance.
  4. The practical age range of 40-50 years.
  5. Strong ability to write effectively.
  6. Great listening skills.
  7. Ability to learn quickly, retain the detail, and correlate the learning into a plan of action to be written out or explained.
  8. Empathy for all others.
  9. Love of the US, it's Constitution and it's Rule of Law.
  10. Previous committed service, in some form, to the country.
  11. A world view that is synonymous with the majority of the American people.
  12. Steadiness in time of great disturbance.
  13. Steadfastness when he or she believes in their own correctness.
  14. More personal focus on what is good for America than what is good for his or her career.
  15. A tendency to say the truth, as she or he sees it, to take actions that are fair to the American people, and a temperament of control when faced with opposition.
