TEACHERS: You can use the text for a dictation, a gapped text, or other form of classroom practice. For your convenience, here is the text you can copy and paste into a Word document.
Who can lead a nation? Who can govern a people? Would you want to be president if you could?
What is good for one isn’t always good for many. A leader should care about the young and the old. A leader must think about families and businesses. To run a country, you need to be a person of action. You must know the law and do what’s right for your people.
