Lis Wiehl and Sebastian Stuart
How can you be certain that who you vote for as President is the person the country needs and who you believe is the best person?
Erica Sparks has worked hard to overcome her personal problems with alcohol to become one of the nation's highest rated cable news host. It isn't easy to be on the top since logically at some time, you know that you have to come off that mountaintop.
Now she has the responsibility and privilege to get to know the two Presidential candidates. One is a woman, Lucy Winters who appears sincere, down-to-earth, genuine and trustworthy. The other is a handsome veteran who also was kidnapped while on a humanitarian mission to Iraq. This man, Mike Ortiz at times appears charismatic while often his eyes look empty and coached by his wife. Who would get your vote?
