The Constitution’s history teaches us much about the types of leaders we should seek out. The founders had diverse backgrounds, people of accomplishment with real world experience. Many demonstrated that a life filled with political experience was not a prerequisite for brilliant thinking and great leadership. Instead of continuing to view political experience as the main criteria for a leader, we should instead examine political candidates understanding and love of America’s history. I know this is 7 years too late, but we can’t continue down the path we’re on now.
