"I've never lost a race."
And it doesn't seem like former South Carolina governor and United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley is planning on losing one in the near future.
That's why if she is going to go after the presidency, she's going to do it with passion. She said recently:
So, do I think I could be that leader? Yes, but we are still working through things, and we'll figure it out. I've never lost a race. I said that then I still say that now. I'm not going to lose now.
We're talking red-hot passion, the kind you might find in the heart of a young kid yearning to make his jayvee basketball team, or the heart of Bill Clinton when he's interviewing that year's batch of interns.
Unlike liberals, Haley is going to put that passion toward positive use. She continued:
Well, when you're looking at a run for president, you look at two things. You first look at, 'does the current situation push for new?' The second question is, 'am I that person that could be that new leader?' You know, on the first question, you can look all across the board, domestic, foreign policy. You can look at, you know, inflation going up, economy shrinking, government getting bigger, you know, small business owners not being able to pay their rent. Big businesses getting these bailouts, all of these things warrant the fact that, yes, we need to go in a new direction.
