VERO BEACH, FL AUTHOR STANFORD ERICKSON WILL MODERATE A THREE-WEEK SESSION ON “THE KIND OF WOMEN CAN BE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES” AT THE INDIAN RIVER STATE COLLEGE RICHARDSON CENTER IN VERO BEACH ON FRIDAYS FROM 9:30 TO 11:30; OCTOBER 21, 24 and November 4, 2016.
The discussion, which includes those attending, will attempt to determine the characteristics that make for a great president be it a woman or a man. Eight women politicians of the 20th century will be profiled to see what best works in terms of personality, character, policy inclinations, campaign style, management style and worldview.
The eight courageous women are: Edith Wilson (second wife of Woodrow Wilson), Eleanor Roosevelt. Golda Meir, Margaret Thatcher, Angela Merkel, Carly Fiorina, Elizabeth Warren and Hillary Rodham Clinton.
It so happens Mr. Erickson is the author of “The Kind of Women Who Can Be President of the United States.”
“There are two reasons I wrote this book. First, from the 2016 election to the end of the 21st century, I assume, as many women will be elected president of the United States as men. Secondly, the reality today is that our country is fighting for its survival as a democratic republic. A country in which ultimate authority and power is derived from the citizens, and the government itself is run through elected officials.”
Mr. Erickson is also the author of “Mama’s Boy Presidents. Why Do We keep Electing Them?”
“A Mama’s Boy is a man with an inordinately affectionate relationship with his mother. The more unbalanced the Mama’s Boy, like Richard Nixon, the more the son himself needed or craved that affection from his mother. A Daddy’s Boy is an innately masculine boy who relates to and admires his father — like President George Washington—or early on identifies with his father like President Calvin Coolidge.”
Cost for the session is $80 for non-members or $55 for members of IRSC. Call 772 462-7880 to sign up.
