What they need is the ability to listen to diverse opinions and differing advice and recognize good advice when they hear it. Presidents dont need an encyclopedic knowledge of facts about the world or even its leaders. What they need is a gift for quickly assimilating new information in order to make sound decisions, perhaps on topics that they first learned about that morning.
All fine and good. I would add as a first requirement the ability to have all decisions strictly follow the language and intent of the United States Constitution.
Our Republic would have been much better served if our leaders did not undertake to "help the people" in the cause of solving "problems." We would have a more peaceful, ordered, and prosperous Republic.

(Hey Rove et al, I will, with great pleasure, NOT cast a vote for the Statist Mitt.)
Fidelity to the constitution, character, passion, leadership, experience in management, organizational skills.
That's the kind of stuff we should be thinking about but, the media and the others keep dragging out the rumors, innuendo and out right lies to keep us in a state of chaos. And it works.
