9 rules for presidential hopefuls l.jpg
9 “RULES” for Presidential Hopefuls

  • 1. Rule of Political Talent: Successful experience in government, in either appointed or elected office. (Victorious generals can ignore this rule if they choose.)

  • 2. Rule of Governors: Nominating conventions frequently choose their candidates from among the state governors. Governors control state delegations and they normally do not take vote-losing stands on controversial issues as do members of Congress

  • 5. Rule of Happy Family Life: Candidates must appear to lead ideal family lives. Showing off a photogenic spouse and wholesome looking children also helps.
