Important Traits in a President
But not only did he lead them, he was also just as important for the diplomatic and political issues as deep as he was into the military. His name Eisenhower has become a name synonymous to leader. For twenty years, first as a soldier and then as a statesman, he bore the daily responsibility for difficult decisions that had far-reaching consequences for the nation as a republic. Dwight’s choices reflected his leadership skills from his army days. Dwight never second doubted himself when it came to a decision; Dwight automatically knew what to do to better defend our country.
Although his main specialty was military decisions Dwight also was a very persuasive man in his speeches he could always convince the people to his decisions showing he was not only an athlete but also a scholar this was one of his many skills that sparked in West Point, which was the reason the military made an appointment with him in the first place. When Eisenhower was a cadet he took an oath in which the promises were all of the traits he used during presidency. Dwight was always quick to learn - graduating in the upper third of his class by 1915. Just as importantly to the education he received was the friendship of such cadets as Omar Bradley, James A. Van Fleet, and Joseph T. McNarney, all members of the "class the stars fell on," they were all men in classes close to his. His strong personality and overwhelming good nature inspired trust within his peers and others. His peers described him as a good man who was always looking to settling disputes to where both sides were happy.
It was clear he had many skills in teamwork and leadership that characterized the army. As the United States was settling in for the First World War, Dwight D. Eisenhower’s career in the army was blooming. He was rapidly increasing with the encouragement of the war coming down on him -- already a regular army captain -- Eisenhower became a lieutenant colonel within the next year. Eisenhower’s presidency was dominated by the Cold War. In 1953 Eisenhower opened relationships with Spain under the fascist leader Francisco Franco. It was a very undemocratic thing to do but Eisenhower knew it was the right choice to get over the Cold War. During these times was when Eisenhower decided he would need to stop the Korean War in order to stop the Cold War. Eisenhower also increased trade relationships with other countries. Through all of his efforts Eisenhower didn't manage to put a stop to the Cold War within his time although he managed to set a good foundation.
To think all these developed skills sparked at West Point for military training. This is the reason i think people with military experience are more likely to get elected.
