Personal Political Philosophy

My “must read” title for college students seeking to understand something about this election: When Character Was King: A Story of Ronald Reagan by Peggy Noonan

My approach to or philosophy of American politics and elections: “A vote is like a rifle: its usefulness depends upon the character of the user.” – Theodore Roosevelt

The four (4) people (living or deceased) I would invite to dinner for the purpose of better understanding American political life are: Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, Ronald Reagan, Martin Luther King Jr.

Wake the Vote Experience

My most memorable Wake the Vote experience so far: My most memorable Wake the Vote experience so far was meeting Chelsea Clinton. Meeting Chelsea Clinton gave me a unique opportunity to gain more insight on Hillary Clinton’s campaign from a first hand source. Chelsea was also very humorous and shared wonderful stories about her experience growing up in the The White House and her life with politics. I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet Chelsea Clinton through Wake the Vote.
