Overview

In theory, there are only two qualifications needed to run for President of the United States: you should be 35 years of age and a natural born U.S. citizen.

So You Want to Be President? Takes you from choosing your party affiliation, through the primaries and ultimately to the general election. Along the way quizzes, tests and obstacles test your presidential mettle. In the back of the book is a handy scorecard for readers to track their progress toward 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
