This idea of leadership style, combined with looking at what Theodore Roosevelt did during his presidency, is very similar to Trump’s way of leading our nation, although they came into office with different political experience. The speech is very much focused on nationalism and on foreign diplomacy, which foreshadows such focus throughout Theodore Roosevelt’s presidency. His clear nationalist emphasis is seen when he mentions that all citizens have a duty and all must work hard, which works to his advantage in getting the attention of the middle, working class and placing himself as a populist, since he says “our first duty is to our own people” (Roosevelt, 1905). By doing so, he quickly gained the attention of the media and the love of the public, which is what allowed him to win another term
The road to the white house and the heroic journey have many similarities because it is the story of how a hero leaves his/her home to overcome obstacles and reach the goal they set out to do. While doing this project I was able to use the steps of the heroic journey and relate them to the presidential election process. I would like to reflect on the project as a whole and explain how the hero 's journey fits with the presidential quest. When I first started this project I thought it was going to be a walk in the park, I was wrong. I didn 't realize the amount of research was needed in order for this project to be put together correctly.

As a form, the blues is an autobiographical chronicle of personal catastrophe expressed lyrically” (Bluestein).
American Governement 170: Profile Paper: Hilary Clinton When we first were asked to write about an American politicians, the first one that always come to my mind are Abraham Lincoln and Benjamin Franklin, because of all their achievement and characteristics as good politicians and charismatic human beings, but we need to write about a”living” politician of the nowadays United States.

Cohen, Millennials & the Myth of the Post-Racial Society: Black Youth, Intra-generational Divisions & the Continuing Racial Divide in American Politics (2011), Cohen states that the "millennials" will dominate the political arena, many of the thorny social issues that have caused great debate and consternation among the American public will be resolved. This suggests that young voters will take over policy-making and leadership. In 2013, the Supreme Court of the United States of America ruled that section four of the Voter’s Registration
“We always hear about the rights of democracy, but the major responsibility of it is participation.” (Marsalis). Politics influences almost everything we do in our lives and how we do it. Therefore, political participation in the American government, a democracy, is the best way to be the change you want to see in your community and in your country.

He believed in nonviolent protests and he advised others to use marches, sit-ins, and peaceful demonstrations to bring attention to segregation and inequality between races. He remained committed to this approach and he slowly inspired people on a national level. In 1963, he led the march on Washington that was designed for jobs and freedom. His speech was given in front of 250,000 people and in his main emphasis King stated, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” Without the leadership of King, there would not have been a way to produce the leaders of today like Barack Obama.
