Jeff Mylet Public Speaking Professor Placke 3/27/2008 Informative Speech – The Process of Electing a President Introduction Politically speaking, 2008 is one of the most interesting years in the history of our country; the United States of America. For the first time, a black man, and a woman are 2 of the top 3 candidates battling for the Presidency of our nation. The primary elections are quickly progressing, and only a definite Republican candidate has emerged in the form of John McCain. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are still furiously campaigning to win the necessary votes in order to win the Democratic Party’s nomination. If you’ve turned on any network news channel recently, then you are probably already up to date with that much. What many of you may not know is the actual entire process of electing our President. Through being a Government and Law major here at Lafayette, I have been required to give much attention in following elections, and learning their processes. In 2004, I volunteered at John Kerry’s campaign headquarters in my city. Through this volunteering, I gained more knowledge about the Presidential election process than most other 18-year-olds I knew at the time. My intentions today are to help all of you gain a better grasp on how the leader of our country is selected. Voting is your right as an American citizen. Whether you even choose to vote, or whom you choose to vote for is your prerogative. However, like it or not, our next President’s decisions on certain issues will affect all of us. Whether those decisions will be good and bad for you will most likely depend on your political stance. Sometimes, people in our country claim to have voted for “the other guy” when our President has been making unpopular decisions. So, if you fall under this category, at least after today you’ll have a better understand of why “your guy” didn’t win.
