The 'Perfect' Presidential Candidate

What are you looking for in a Presidential candidate?

I'm looking for a person with:
Obviously, I choose scriptures as my criteria for solid leadership because I believe the Bible is God's manual for successful living.
If candidates think adhering to and living by biblical truth isn't important, I wonder about their leadership strength. 
George Washington, our first President, said, "It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible." (See what other Presidents said, here.)

(And a point might be made that it's harder - if not impossible - to live out these biblical truths without knowing the Lord.)

But back to politics.

Unfortunately, there is no "perfect" candidate. 

Every candidate has strengths and weaknesses. Every person - no matter his or her aspirations - reaps what is sown (Galatians 6:7-8).

So we need much wisdom as we survey the candidates.

Lord, help us seek You 
to discern the best candidate for our times.
