I have a lot of opinions.
I love that we live in a country that we have the opportunity to vote for our elected officials.
In looking at my Facebook and Twitter feeds from yesterday, particularly from my PR and media friends, I am not alone. But instead of doing the same old boring blog post about our right to vote, the importance of voting, you can’t complain if you don’t vote, yada yada yada, I thought a more interesting question would be: if you could do public relations for any president (past or present) who would it be and why?
And, YES I know this was not a presidential election but I still like the question!
Team HMA weighed in:
Scott- President Abraham Lincoln- because he saved the country and ended slavery. It was such a divisive time in our history and he masterfully guided the nation through it.
Abbie- I was the last one to respond to Rachel’s question and since Scott said President Lincoln, I’m going with George Washington. I think it would have been interesting to be on the team when he was elected president. Unchartered territory, lots of firsts.
Alison- President Harrison because he died after just 30 days in office so it would be a short job. Hence why I would want it, as I would rather do anything than a job in politics of any kind.
Kelly – President John F. Kennedy because I would be able to manage the alleged “scandalous” events such as with Marilyn Monroe.
Shelby- President Nixon or President Carter because they both probably needed it the most and they would be the most challenging, which would be the most fulfilling.
And I personally would choose President Reagan, because my grandmother always talked about how he was the greatest President we ever had, and you can’t argue with my grandmother. But if I could choose a second it would also be President John F. Kennedy because managing his crisis communication would be a fascinating full-time job and I would have (hopefully) been able to get to know Jackie O.
So now that you know who Team HMA would select, please let me know, if you could do public relations for any president (past or present) who would it be and why?
