The article offers opinion about the significance of sincerity as an element in winning the presidency. However, the importance of this personal quality becomes magnified in times which particularly are confusing and tough concerning domestic economics and foreign policy. Ronald Reagan had a sincere persona in 1980, a year similar in many ways to 2008, in which the country also confronted a declining economy and complex foreign policy problems. In the case of Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, there is still question about their sincerity.
