So it is my sincere hope that both candidates use their bully pulpits to demonstrate the benefits of speaking openly about one's disability - and at the same time encourage employers to do what's necessary to create work environments that allow their employees to feel safe in making that disclosure.

I hope that President Obama will duly consider this fact as he selects a nominee.
