Many people when they are growing up are asked what they what to be when they grow up. The majority of people have at one point in their life answered, “I want to be president.” But the majority of people grow up never knowing what it takes to be president. Many people have no idea how hard the road is to becoming the president of the united states. Candidates must travel a long road that can at some times be bumpy and windy, but for them to become president, they must endure these temporary setbacks in order to achieve their ultimate goal.
