If you're running for president, your resume should include either the title of governor, senator, or general. Being a doctor or a business executive is fine, but only if followed by more prestigious, more requisite entries.

It starts with thinking of yourself as a part of the "we". Better start backpedaling.

Backpedaling from what? I am a voter from the left. Sometimes the points you try to make are simply inane.

By the american standards of left. Which is part of the problem. You think of yourself as a part of a we but does the we see it that way? If the we can that readily define center right as "left" how ready is it to ignore any of your opinions just because they aren't parroted straight from the party handbook?
