You know, I'm a bit surprised that my name isn't on the short list.
I have "the heart, the empathy, to recognize what it's like to be a young teenage mom." I also happen to have "the empathy to understand what it's like to be poor, or African-American, or gay, or disabled, or old." (link)
What's even better is that I'm not an ivory tower type who only pretends to have those qualities.
I hope I get a call from the White House soon, because the only other job I can think of that emphasizes those particular qualities is acting as a stand-in for Dr. Phil.
