Presidents have played very important roles in the development of their respective countries over the years. They are leaders that people look up to for inspiration, because they are public figures. However, being a public figure doesn't mean that they are beyond mistakes.
In Iowa this weekend we were graced with the opportunity to watch many of the Democratic candidates pitch their views, and more importantly their personalities, on stage in a brief five minute speech. Think of it as presidential candidate speed-dating for the voters.

Several Democrats have officially announced that they will be running for the candidacy of their party. The party needs interior changes after Hilary Clinton’s defeat in 2016 to a non-political candidate. As well as being a surprise defeat, it was a defeat which undermined the party moving forward after two successful terms in power with Barack Obama. The way forward for the party is new faces and a fresh political view. At this point in time, it is unclear just who Americans will see on their voting cards next to President Trump.

With the United States government in complete polarization between both parties, the wheels of progress have almost come to a complete halt. In a bygone era when just compromise was inevitable, the wheels of progress rolled right along. Sure, there were bumps along the way, but none so high as to stop the way. Now, as we head toward 2020, much has to be done, not only to secure a better future, but to make sure there is a future.
