Elizabeth Dole for President 2000 Campaign Brochure
‘National Leadership World Respect.’
Securing the future and opportunities for children is and will be my top priority as President of the United States. These times demand a President who is both a skilled chief executive and a confident moral leader -- a head of state who respects America's people, one who can stand up and say what is right and what is wrong, one who can restore America's belief in the power of the individual to make a difference.
I have spent a lifetime as a servant of the public -- to you and your neighbors. If there is an overriding theme to my service, it lies in placing service over politics, consensus over confrontation, courage over political correctness. I believe in America and I believe in Americans. You deserve a president who will stand strong for you, your children, and the future.
With your help today, I can be that president.
To me, restoring a national belief in the power of the individual and the need for acceptance of personal responsibility is our main challenge today as a nation. It forms the core of my drive to make our public schools the best in the world, reduce the tax burden on working families, renew our national security, and win a decisive, victory over the, illegal drugs, crime and violence in our society.
I have served in five White House administrations. I know how government works and what it takes to get things done in Washington.
But I also know executive leadership outside of government, how to respond when a national crisis hits, and how to deal with America's friends, allies and adversaries abroad.
I'm running for President to put my education, my experience and my commitment to excellence to work for America in the White House.
Join me in this campaign for a better America.
Let's make history!
