Choosing a new president.

In our 11/12/07 issue, we asked you to tell us what qualities you would look for in e presidential candidate. Since so many of you responded, we decided to print more of your replies.

My ideal candidate is someone who won't start a lot of drama, is loyal, has a wonderful personality, and sticks to what he/she believes. Even though I'm too young to vote, I'm not too young to start thinking about the type of President I want.

In addition to being trustworthy, the next President should be open to new attitudes and ideas. This could help our country face tough issues like global warming and the Iraq war.

I would like to see a candidate treat everyone alike and understand what the people want. I also think he or she should care more about what is going on in the United States than in any other country.
