  • No---you have to have a huge ego and a thick skin and lots of money..... I have none of those. ;-)

  • I tell my husband he should!! He has the kind of education/knowledge, political finesse/diplomacy and fiscal conservancy that is sorely needed these days!! But I would never--I feel I make a bigger impact in my everyday travels throughout my community, and have more power and freedom than I would if I were to sell my soul to lobbyists and special interest groups, making back room deals, having to bite my tongue at every turn, etc just for a "moment in the spotlight!!" LOL :o)

  • Probably not. I'm afraid having a Woman for President is not yet reachable. Hillary Clinton tried very hard to get into office. However, as she tried and we must give her the credit for not giving up or giving in to all the negative while the campaign was going on. We still have a long way to go unfortunately.

  • Of course, I hope to make a run for city council in a couple of years. I also wouldn't mind a position on the school board. I would love to run for a state level office when my boys are grown.
