    Yes. Politicians already operate under a spotlight. I would question the motives of anyone who invited the press to encroach that much further into their business. The President may be a public servant, but he is not public property; he has the right to continue conducting his personal affairs without interference while he serves.

    No. But your exclusions did not cover talks with foreign officials in our country, nor private negotiations with domestic organizations. Such a promise would prevent the President from having any dealings in confidence, rendering him incapable of mediating in union disputes and using any of his own personal influence-- outside of his naked authority as President-- to accomplish his national agenda, which would include the issues which he has promised to pursue on behalf of the public. What you are talking about is a massive impediment to his ability to do his job.

    The President's powers exist far beyond what he is capable of ordering. If he doesn't have the space to work his magic, he is diminished.

    I would tend to think such a candidate was too stupid and dishonest to elect.

    All that will come of this is that someone will turn it into a reality TV show in the vein of OctoMom or Jon and Kate + 8.

    Its quite interesting how this thread is turning out. So many people demand transparency from our government and the President and yet when given the opportunity they are filled with suspician and think the person is "nutz" as MaggieD put it.

    Interesting indeed.

    Maybe... I am not sure if it's safe for the country or the president. I would have to know more, and I would also need to their stance on the issues. However, I am open to it...

    I was starting to think it would be like a reality show too, but in the White House... wait a minute, I think the candidate he is asking us about is Sarah Palin.

    Trick question! Trick question!

    If he shared the same political views I shared then sure.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I'd be more impressed if the candidate agreed to dress like a Nascar driver, so we knew up front just who his sponsors were.
