During Monday night's debate, my daughter asked
what she needed to do, starting now, to become POTUS at some point in the future.
Potentially useful information: she is 9; in 4th grade at a parochial school; gets decent 'grades' (they don't start with letter grades until 5th grade) but struggles with math purely because she thinks it's boring. She is an insatiable reader and loves to write (she's working on a book right now). She's danced since she was 3, taken gymnastics longer than that, plays violin and sings with the choir. She's a Girl Scout.
Family information: we are about as white as you can get, she and her two younger brothers are being raised Catholic, though my husband is agnostic/athiest. Parents are highly educated (PhD, JD). I'm at home, my husband is upper management. Based on current numbers, we're at the bottom of the 1%. Neither of our families of origin are or ever were near that, as far as I'm aware. We are both US citizens, though my husband was born in Canada of American parents. She does hold Canadian citizenship through him - we established that when she was born, as GWB was POTUS and I wanted to keep all options open. Both my husband and I are progressive politically and socially.
So, MetaFilter, what say you? What does she need to do, starting now?
