Sure, put my hat in the ring. The first Logical Party President.
There's no way in Hell I'd survive the first term. But man, what a ride. I'd take it in a heartbeat.
Sure. It'd be easy if you're not concerned about party politics. Sign the laws, just do what your advisors say. No worries.
"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)
If enough people wrote in my name and somehow the undemocratic electoral college voted me in then i would.

It would be a complete waste of my time to be president of a country that does not find my goals things that they want and I don't find what they want things this country needs more of. While it is a nice thought to be president there is no point for me in accepting the job at this time. Thanks, but no thanks. That is unless they elect a bunch of people that agree with me and I can get things done.
Sure. $400k a year and an assured immortal legacy, without even having to work toward it. Sure its a tough job with long hours, but I'm sure most of it is probably more exciting than an average 9-5 job.
There should be Instant Runoff Voting

To be president means to represent all the citizens in your country. I don't want to do that because I cannot represent them all because of various reasons. I have nothing in common with them except our human condition. I could represent certain fragments of the population, but nowhere near the 50%+1 needed... and because I don't want to be a tyrant, I do not want to be president.
Should I do what I believe of what the people want me to do?
Do I actually read the thousands of pages of legislation that comes in on a daily basis in the morning and the check up on our national security every evening? Or should I delegate, if so who?
I say one thing wrong half the country attacks me
No vacation for four/eight years
...sometimes we need to have a bit of respect for what our presidents do. Even bad one's like Bush.
I might do it if I know I'm ready, but right now I'd only do it in a simulation.
