Hi and welcome to the inaugural blog post of Misty’s The Classroom.
On our first radio show we spoke about leaders, leadership and how important it is to be liked by voters. Will this election be based on being liked alone?
I was curious to see what kind of bump the polls would show –Reuters/Ipso has the candidates in a dead heat. Though the polls do not agree on who has the lead there is one thing the polls are in agreement . As Tom Brokaw highlighted this past Sunday – it is the women in the campaign – Ann Romney and Michele Obama, who are the candidates’ best campaigners. People like them.
So where does that leave the undecided voters? Women and minorities in particular?
What will Romney/Ryan deliver for women and minorities?
While it was great seeing women leaders take to a national stage at the RNC last week, what will it take to have more women in the Romney/Ryan cabinet? In the Senate? In the House?
What we know for certain as there was very few concrete promises made last week.
What we know for certain is we have the opportunity to vote for change. Change to enable economic growth and change to enable job creation. Change to create an energy policy instead of one based on the current President’s belief we are not paying enough for gas. Change for the better.
Over the next few weeks as we approach the elections, I look forward to candidates’ debates. I believe their innate capabilities will be highlighted in their respective replies. I also believe the undecided vote; primarily women and minorities will begin to form their final opinion on who they will vote for as the next President of the United States.
Here’s to the campaign season, live debates and the chance to make a difference by voting for change.
