My belief is that the powers of making treaties with other nations and signing or rejecting bills is important. Treaties is a very important part in having peace and if the leaders of nations come together to do so than we can dodge a bullet into war. Signing and rejecting bills is also important as if the courts rule out a bill that the public does not like, the president can veto it and vice versa, accept it if it is favored.
2) Appearance. We shouldn't have a messy person or too old of a character since we are a younger nation we should keep our stereotype as having new generation nominees such as people around the age of 40 - 50 with the exception of Trump.
3) Good decisions. His actions and decisions towards the country should be in favor with the people in most cases.
4) Friendly. We shouldn't have a tempered president who would be getting us into conflict with other nations or stirring up problems in congress.
5) Family man. The president should be a person who has experience with a family to get an idea of how the majority of the country lives and how to improve certain situations in certain areas.
2) Commander in Chief. The president is the commander of all forces and acts this as a civilian as stated in the worksheet.
3) Chief Executive. Gets a say in laws and to carry some out but some may not always be accepted by the congress.
4) Chief of State. The role here is the president having to represent the country in public events through attending them. An example would also include visiting places after certain disasters such as Bush who attended hurricane Katrina victims.
5) Chief Diplomat. The role here is a big one as it gives our president the ability to meet and discuss treaties as well as other important meetings with other foreign leaders. This is how we make alliances and business deals.
6) Chief Legislator. The president can pass or attempt to pass any law(s) that he sees needed. An example would be Obama passing the healthcare of Obama care through congress.
