I am going to go with the asterisk for indicating a wild card character – insert an h or not, it will save me typing.
I nominate my friend Sarabeth for US President, and I’ll tell you why I’ll vote for her:
1. First and foremost, in a way she has both an h and the absence of an h at the end of her name. It’s kinda funny, but it works. Bi-partisanship – that’s the way you win votes in Congress.
2. It would be ironic to vote for her because she is an Objectivist and Ayn Rand wrote about how a woman should NOT be President (Ayn Rand, author of _Atlas Shrugged_).
3. She likes cats, not dogs. We need a cat person in the White House. They’re reserved, choosy about their friends, and won’t randomly attack you.
So those are the personal reasons to vote for her. How about her stand on political issues:
War in Iraq – ethnically Lebanese, she can actually find and identify the Middle East on a map, and having family that comes from there, would be less likely to bomb them
Global Warming – Sarabeth has general LISTENING skills that come in handy when it comes to international cooperation – what was that, burning coal for electricity and gasoline for fuel will cause hurricanes, droughts, extinctions? You don’t say?
to sum up for a few more issues – social security, health care reform, GLBT marriage, abortion – basically, Sarabeth is a capitalist – much more interested in letting you take care of yourself and your own future than micro-managing it for you.
