"How To Be President"
Clergy-Led Candidate Interview #1:
Former U.S. Rep. John Delaney (D-MD)
How does one person go about holding the power of life and death, in familiar places and all over the world?
How can you know enough about enough issues, and enough about how to rely on people who know far more than you on many of them?
What is it like to try to be a person of integrity in a role where moral ambiguity and sheer uncertainty are persuasive?
How does one deal with regular failure and partial success, while sustaining the ego necessary to be the leader of a nation and of the free world?
These are the kinds of questions that don't usually get asked in a campaign. A group of Nashua-area clergy, spearheaded by Rabbi Jon, are organizing public interviews where you will hear this kind of conversation! At each event, a panel of 2-3 clergy will ask questions and talk with the candidate. You are welcome to stay afterward and speak with Rep. Delaney individually.We will share the video of the event widely and ask you to do the same!
If you have a connection with any of the other campaigns and can help us get an invitation into the right hands, please contact Rabbi Jon.
