Candidates as Residents
I'm beginning to see the Presidential candidates in ways that just weeks ago I couldn't imagine. I guess its a side affect of paying more attention in preparation to carry out my civic duty in the upcoming primary. . . blah, blah, blah.
Anyway, its really tough to decide, and I'm not just talking about choosing an individual candidate or party, but an authentic person I could believe in to lead our country. So I got to thinking. . . and figured I'm looking at this all wrong. Why not use my highly evolved property management abilities to help me select the right candidate. In fact this method might even make it easier for all of us Apartment Industry/multi housing pro's to vote with clarity.
So I finally asked myself---What type of resident would each candidate make? With this simple question I was able to evaluate each candidate with much more confidence.
P.S. heres my answers, whats yours?
Hillary- Likely to be the resident that insists on being present to oversee a service request (even if Bill is home)
Mitt- Likely to complain about limited parking spaces
Barack- Hangs around the clubhouse after work to watch Oprah
McCain- Typical retiree veteran that walks his miniature poodle every morning like clockwork 0600 hours sharp!
Edwards- Constantly threatens to sue his neighbor McCain for "excessive" dog barking every morning at exactly 0600 hours.
Guliani- Quintessential snowbird/empty nester that cant stop comparing New Yawk to Floridah
Huckabee- Is likely to face eviction for the weekly classic rock jam sessions
