    Re: someone to lead us

    It's okay. I'm not sure of the context you have in mind. He is someone who can lead us, or he was hired to lead us, or something else could work as well.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Yes, but it doesn't need 1- in front of it.

    Please give some context in future postings.
