I don’t want the person with the lightest skin or the darkest skin – I could care less about skin as long as it’s a thick enough skin for the job.
I don’t necessarily want a Republican; I don’t necessarily want a Democrat.
I don’t want a conservative, I don’t want a liberal, but would be open to a person willing to look beyond broad labels and rhetoric to honestly examine each issue with the best interest of the people in mind.
I don’t want the best public speaker.
I don’t want the most polished image.
I don’t want the candidate with the most scathing campaign ads.
I don’t want the candidate who raises the most money.
I don’t want a candidate beholden to special interest groups.
I don’t want the candidate with the best speechwriter.
I don’t want the candidate that’s most photogenic.
I don’t want the candidate with the most Washington experience.
I don’t want an outsider claiming to save us all from entrenched bureaucrats.
I don’t want the person with the most electable running mate.
I don’t want the person the media loves.
I don’t want the person the media hates.
I definitely DON’T want the best politician.
I DO want the best president. Black, white, male, female, left, right, I want someone who can look beyond his/her own political career, beyond the party lines, beyond financial supporters, and make the tough decisions to the best of his/her ability with the best interests of this country as the single guiding force.
No, I’m not so naïve as to expect this person to actually exist, but I’m not so jaded as to give up hope.
On second thought, maybe I am naïve enough to want just a small miracle.
INTRODUCING My new thriller, CHASING KELVIN!
Marc and Dana Huntington are back in an adventure that that will forever change their lives and rock them to the very core.
Government officials assassinated all about the globe. Seemingly unconnected terrorist attacks shake four continents. Former Delta Force commander Marc (Hunt) Huntington and his wife, ex British intelligence officer Dana, are thrust into the fray when they uncover a terrorist plot onboard a speeding train – a plot that might originate at the highest levels of U.S. government. Savagely attacked, Dana is caught in a web of conspiracy as an unwilling pawn. Hunt races against time to find the elusive cure to a deadly militarized bacterium before tens of thousands perish. What is the connection to the dozens of comatose forms secreted away in a concealed Swiss retreat? Is there a link to the Huntington’s bizarre find in the Amazon Jungle some months before? Will Dana escape nearly certain death?
Filled with breathtaking suspense and nonstop danger, this is a thriller you won’t put down until you’ve turned the final shocking page.
