Agree or disagree?

  • Well..... in a way. I guess you do have to have the belief that you can do something and make a difference and I do believe some of the Presidents have had a visibly huge ego (especially this one) . For this round though, the people I see actually getting into the race are not fame seekers. Good lord, you would have to have some belief in your strengths and abilities. It will take a special person to weather the crap the Progressives, the Democrats and their left wing media will be putting them through.

  • A big what? Lol.....

    Answer by tyme4me2day at 12:44 AM on May. 20, 2011

  • Yep, I fully believe that. All leaders have to have quite a bit of ego. You have to be sure of yourself, certain of your decisions, and of course, you have to think you're good enough to win!

    It's neither here nor there to me. I focus on the decisions actually made, not so much the personality of the Prez.

  • Yes, I thinkso. For someone to actually look at that job and think "I can do that" would require at the very least a hyper-healthy sense of self esteem.
