I’ve been beating myself up the past 48 hours because if only I’d known John McCain’s standards for a candidate for Vice President of the United States, I would have contacted the McCain vetting team and submitted my wife for consideration.
My wife worked in a bank for several years.
My wife was elected VP of Finance for the local chapter of an international organization.
My wife is the team leader of a group of systems analysts who maintain web servers 24×7. As such, she has frequent contact with teammates in India and Brazil. I might add that she has an excellent rapport with these folks, clear demonstration of her diplomatic ability.
As stated earlier, she was elected in a landslide victory for VP of Finance. Furthermore, I know of no one who has been more capable of cutting through office politics. She would end the gridlock in Washington!
That 3am Phone Call
Take it from me, my wife receives work related phone calls at 1am, 2am, 3am, 4am and just today 5:15am (she’s currently taking a well deserved nap).
Compelling Personal Story
My wife is a cancer survivor whose father had a physical disability, whose cousin has a cognitive disability and whose husband has a physical disability. She grew up in a small town in Illinois, rose through the ranks of the banking industry and then relocated to the East coast where she re-invented herself as an expert in information technology. She was an accomplished clarinetist in her home town marching band and she makes damn good caramel corn. Her daughter is about to be deployed to pre-K class this September.
If there are any independent candidates for President out there who have not yet chosen a running mate, please contact me.
Mrs. Lawson is ready to serve!
