Is the President a Role Model?

I normally stay away from political discussions here. However, I found a recent post by Mark Cuban particually thought provoking. Mark’s conclusion is that our President (regardless of who it is) is not a role model:

I’m not trying to call out any of the candidates on this. They are all human, with the same level of problems and vices that we all have. The point is that we live under a new reality. There are no more role models. People no longer live their lives trying to be bulletproof to media scrutiny. Personally, I don’t think that is bad at all. Maybe it’s time we finally admit that Presidents specifically, and politicians unilaterally are not role models, and stick to the issues and their ability to lead.

I don’t care if our President or VP has smoked pot. I don’t care if they weren’t a good student. I do care about how well they can do their job.

I don’t have much more to say about Cuban’s post, other than to urge you to read the entire thing.
