Would you promote your poor performers?
Would you promote an employee who ranked a 2 out of 10 on his or her last performance review? That is exactly what the Democratic and Republican parties are asking us to do. The Presidential campaign is referred to as one long job interview. Yet, the 3 people who are applying for the job get low marks from the public. According to RealClearPolitics, only 21% of the country approves of the job Congress is doing. Yet, John McCain, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama are all sitting Senators and vying for this promotion.
