LIVING BEYOND EXPECTATIONS
From the Desk of Sarah Nadler Troutdale, Oregon
On July 28th, 2020 Mattel announced their latest Barbie candidate for the presidency. She's black, she sports a hot pink blazer, and this year she's got the campaign manager to back it up.
NPR will tell you that Barbie's 2020 presidential campaign ended before it began. Like many media channels in the male-dominated political world, they're counting their votes before we (the voters) have cast them.
Why am I voting Barbie for president this November, and should you be doing the same? Let's review the facts - and let the voters decide!

We all know that before America ever was great, African people helped build the infrastructure for everything she is today.
As a black woman, Barbie has been a part of the American workforce since before it was "cool" for women to do so.
In fact, when the US had the famous wave of white women entering the workforce in the 1970s, Barbie had already been a career woman for ten years, and black women already boasted a whopping 50% employment rate!
No stranger to doing work, Barbie represents the true American - the kind of leader who commands from the front, not safely behind the lines.
Nothing says that more than her career in the US military as a Marine, following her short but thrilling careers in both the Navy and Air Force.
After decades of war overseas, resulting in 14,000+ US casualties in the middle East, it is time to put a veteran in the Oval office.
Barbie won her first campaign for racial equity In 1980, twenty-three years before the Black Lives Matter movement.
Since that time, she has proven to be a supporter of human rights and the BIPOC community by spreading a message of the basic dignity of the human spirit.
Barbie has worked alongside such notables as Yara Shahidi, activist and supermodel Adwoa Aboah, as well as earning the title of UNICEF ambassador in her own right.
At a time when the American people are struggling to find common ground across the socioeconomic and racial spectrum, Barbie has long stood for unity and the strength of interracial friendship.
While I could go on...why bother?
If you're looking for a president to lead America out of recession and into a Golden Age, Barbie checks all the boxes. As a celebrity and household name, she has the charisma and popularity to inspire us, and as a career mom with two kids, you know she has the guts to do the job.
Afterall, with all the titles, faces and careers Barbie has had over the years...there is more truth in her latest motto than any politico can boast: WE ARE BARBIE.
On November 3, vote for yourself. Vote Barbie.
