These twelve traits are in no particular order, although I would probably say the first one is the most important one for me:
- sense of humor
- sense of gratitude
To me, character matters, a lot, in our leaders.
I think it would be impossible to find a President who has all the same views on the issues that I have, but if the President had these twelve traits, I would certainly respect and support his leadership.
I do think there is one person who would have met all of my requirements, but he passed away in 2003.
We could use a man like Mr. Rogers today.
By the way, here’s the official trailer for the new movie about Mr. Rogers, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, starring Tom Hanks. The movie will be released on November 22.
I want the U.S. to be a beautiful neighborhood.
