If YOU could write in anyone in 2008

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Let's pretend that in 2008 all the presidential (whoever they may be) kill each other the night before the election.

The U.S. changes the rules *this one time* to allow you to write in whoever you would want as president. Who would you pick and why?

Personally I would write in Stephen Colbert for president. Yes I know he's comedic, but I love how he finds the flaws in everyone's proposals or attempted fixes to situations.

That's a toughie. I know who I'd like to see in there but he's got far too much to do in ministry before he joins God in Heaven...that would be Rev. Billy Graham He'd get the country back on track

Al Gore. But would he really want to have to clean up Bush's messes?
ETA: I would choose Gore for two reasons. 1) He's one of a select number of (former) politicians who are really trying to do something to prevent a catastrophe brought about by climate change, and 2) he was cheated out of the office by Florida's shenanigans and Daddy Bush's Supreme Court appointees.

Yeah to that. The man is a genius. And one of my favourite political comedians of all time. I am constantly amazed at his vast intelligence and acerbic insight. Dunno if he'd want the top job though - he could be more like the media liaison

Me too. I like how Gore wants to protect the environment. Why won't he run?

Me, We need someone who really cares about America..
We dont need anymore people like al gore,or bush, clinton, or anyone that is has spent there life sucking up to Special Interest Group(accept for the NRA)

we need people to run for office, that wont sale us out for oil(bush), Money(clinton ,gore)
been a long time, i think since we had people in the public office that really care about his country more then they care about there bank account.

I like Jon Stewart over Steven Colbert, but I wouldn't quibble over either one of them!

But I would probably write in Al Gore. He's got the closest presidential experience (being a vice president) and a long history of public service.

Sad, but I would have voted for him back in the 90's if I were old enough at the time he was running--heck, he has enough money that he could pay our debt off and we'd be free and clear.

In a different thread I said Mike Rowe--because he's used to dirty jobs .


I would pick.....Ted Nugent. I don't know why--he's just crazy and real.

Or if it had to be a woman, my choice would be between Nancy Grace and Greta Van Susteren.

If she were still alive I would pick Flower the matriarch of the Whiskers Clan of the Calihari..... She ran a family of 40+ meerkats with an iron hand. She would definitely get my vote.
post #15 of 28
That sounds pretty good to me. I don't doubt a meerkat would be smarter and make better decisions than most of our recent presidents.

Ted Nugent /./// why cause he would tell everyone off and get things in order

Molly, everyone respects a girl with a moustache!

Realistically Al Gore.

Because then he would have to actually DEBATE someone.
I read last week that he was challenged to a debate onf Global Warming and he refused.

Bill O'Reilly
post #20 of 28
Rush Limbaugh would be a good choice also. I listen to his show all the time.

Bill O'Reilly for President and

Rush Limbaugh for Vice President!

No one. My candidate is already running (kicking butt and taking names) and is thisclose to fulfilling my dream of seeing a strong woman lead our country!

Honestly politics disgusts me. . .

I would pencil in Mickey Mouse. . .

I think every last politician is a slimeball, up to and including the women. . .

Perhaps Jim Carrey, because he is funnier then heck. . .


Or Hugh Jackman, because he is the sexiest creature on earth. . . Yes that is as much as politics means to me. . .

If you agree with her stance, then great ...but IMO, I wouldn't vote for a woman JUST because she's a woman. I'd rather vote for a man who has the same stance that I do, than for a woman just to see one in the big House.
