    I wish Michael Jackson was alive so he could run for President but I guess Justin Beiber will have to do Go Justin!!!! Maybe the band Kiss could run.

    exactly.. well, except you really don't want me....I'd embarrass this country by being an asshole at inappropriate times

    for me, it's agenda and character.... with a lil bit more emphasis on character.
    I can tolerate a different agenda , within reason, if the person has a good character.

    the ones that truly scare me are easy to spot... they are the ones that really really want the job.

    But that's not what you're saying. You're saying that very accomplished individuals have done nothing. Your own personal expectations for congress and presidential qualification aside, you're engaged in belittling very successful women.

    No. I have not said that very accomplished individual have done nothing. I said that a fancy title and a big salary are not necessarily an accomplishment, most especially when they are a payoff or perks in a political machine. Try to keep up okay?

    Wait, what?

    On a practical level, anyone who can process information and give orders can be a senator or president.

    On a moral level, this is a republic -- any civilian-citizen that can convince the body politic they should be the leader is certified to rule by their election. The hermit who lived in a cave for thirty years deserves to be president if he can convince the public his is the heart of a leader.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
