The presidential election is on its way. Who will you vote for? This is a question that every American citizen should take seriously, especially when the need for an exemplary leader is a highly significant matter within the current troubled economy. Let us get to know two of the personalities vying for the Republican nomination. Of course who could surpass the strong rivalry of Hilary Clinton and Barrack Obama? Maybe it will be these two Republicans!
Governor Mitt Romney has received accolades when he took the daunting task of becoming the President and Chief Executive of the Salt Lake Organizing Committee for the 2002 Winter Olympics. He is a successful businessman and public leader. In just three years he was able to rise above Salt Lake’s budget deficit of $379 million.
Before he served as spearhead of the Olympics, he has already entrenched his name in the field of business. He was Vice President of a Boston based management consulting company from 1978-1984. He also established Bain Capital which became a flourishing investment company.
Mitt Romney achieved the highest honors from Brigham Young University in 1971 upon completion of his BA. He finished his MBA at Harvard Business School as Baker Scholar. Moreover, he was awarded as JD cum laude at the Harvard Law School.

With hope of a better America, voter turnout is expected to be the same as when Obama won. For the time being, Republicans should choose their candidate to the US presidency. To date, it is a head to head battle of these two hopeful candidates.
