Everyone Should Know Criteria For President
In his letter last week, writer Joseph Ceder asked, "Where are the criteria of who can and cannot be considered for such a high position?" in reference to Senator Obama's candidacy for president. I'd suggest he not become a contestant on the "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader" show. Any reasonably educated American ought to know that the criteria as to who may be considered is set forth in the Constitution. Beyond those specially set forth, the criteria in our free society are those that each individual voter deems required in the person each opts to vote for.
I haven't decided which candidate has my vote yet, but the content of Mr. Ceder's letter pushes me closer to opting for Obama. I've had more than enough of the demonization of Democrats by the radical right over the last decade.
