Qualifications For Presidency Opens The Door To Many Candidates

September 24th, 2010 – Written By Bonnie

When President Obama was elected into office, it seemed as if our nations had overcome decades of racial boundaries by voting into office an African American. Many Americans believe that the running of a country has absolutely nothing to do with the race of the leader and that a nation and voters should always base their decision on which candidate is most qualified for the position. One would actually be surprised to learn that the qualifications to become President of The United States are really not that high.

Candidates must be at least 35 years of age, be a US citizen and they must have maintained residency in the United States for at least 14 years. Is this truly all it takes to become president? This Does not seem to be that high of standards one would expect for the power to lead an entire country. Obama met those requirements, and after a tight race all the way up until election day, Barack Obama was named the first African American President.

What he promised in his campaign was enough to sway people to support him, but promising and delivering are two different stories. There is no question that he has been hit was some major tragedies since he took on the role of President of The United States. The ongoing war in Afghanistan, the recent oil spill and the every day duties that come with trying to run a country. How Obama has handled each situation has been criticized from start to finish. It seems as if Obama puts his own personal needs above the needs of all American people, which is what he was hired to do.

We are half way through Barack Obama’s term as President of The United States and already, talk has began on who will be elected president in 2012. The campaigning has already begun and as we inch closer to another presidential election, America will be ready to voice their opinions through the poles. Online sportsbooks are actually offering entertainment betting odds on which person may make the list for candidates in 2012.
