    Edit: he or she would have to be constitutionally eligible.

    **** no.... Presidents are over rated.

    I wouldn't mind being on the cabinet though.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I would be a terrible president. But I would make for a GREAT dictator.

    Besides, I inhaled. Over and over again.

    There goes my chances at President. LOL!

    Re: Do you want to be president?

    no....

    i would never put my family through the scrutiny and crap that politicians deal with now

    everyone on the other side looking for any little morsel in your background

    having your life turned upside down by the media and press

    the job itself.....not sure i have the "right stuff"

    and i definitely dont have the poker face ability to lie to people

    I wonder how a president can only make 500k (expenses included,) a year and still be a millionaire?

    Deferred bribery, that's how. "Do this favor for me now and I will give you 100k for a 15 minute speaking engagement when you get out of office."

    My favorite is, "I will buy 5000 copies of your book if you hook a brother up on this federal contract."

    ****ing crooks. All of them.

    With a little bit of practice, you'll have that down pat in no time.

    The hardest part is not messing up the old lies with the new ones.

    Only if I could be an emperor like the current President.

    My VP would be James Woods.
