Top 10 Things Romney Should Do If Elected
The following commentary comes from an independent investor or market observer as part of TheStreet's guest contributor program, which is separate from the company's news coverage.
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- As Mitt Romney edges closer to securing enough delegates to win the GOP presidential nomination, it's not too early to speculate what his agenda might be if he becomes president.
1. One of a leader's most important skills is bringing ideas and people together. It's the role of a unifier. Romney's first priority as president will be to kill the divisive rhetoric that has pitted congressional Democrats against Republicans, the private sector against the public sector, the more successful as measured by wealth against the less successful, Wall Street against Main Street, and the U.S. against half the world.
2. He should submit to Congress a pre-vetted list of nominations for his cabinet. They include the best technocrats in their field, experienced effective leaders and negotiators, and people who know how to function on a team that is focused on reviving the American economy while leveraging American values.3. He will get closure on the Great Recession by leading the nation in purging the Gordon Gecko-types through a national promotional program to educate shareholders on how corporate America operates.
