Backs Elwood for president

Published: Wednesday, Dec. 18, 2013 1:15 a.m. CDT

Elwood’s mentor, Doug Hand, has passed, and in his honor, I suggest we nominate Elwood for president of the United States.

Elwood has more successful experience in foreign affairs than the current occupier of the White House. Elwood has met with monarchs, presidents, prime ministers, numerous other world leaders, business leaders, local governments, and others in all walks of life.

He even flew with astronauts to outer space. All his meetings were friendly and successful, unmatched by any current leaders. Elwood was loved by all who met him. 

Elwood and Doug Hand have touched many lives in a most positive way. Doug will be sorely missed, but he lives on in Elwood.

A fitting tribute to Mr. Hand would be Elwood for president. He would be a better choice than what we have now.
