DIRECTIONS for BUTTONS:
Remember: People don't buy what you do, they buy WHY you do it. If you want someone to vote for you, they have to know what you BELIEVE (more so than what you will do). If they believe what you believe, they will vote for you. SO, your button needs to convey a core belief of your president so potential voters can see it and say AHA! I believe that, too!
