Proposed Qualifications for the Next President
Instead of campaign speeches and debates, presidential hopefuls should be required to complete a year-long educational boot camp in which they study history, psychology, and strategic planning.
To complete their studies, they'll need to pass the basic American citizenship test. If they do so, they can move on to the next phase, planning.
Hopefuls would then be required to map out campaign plans and decisions for the full four years they would be in office. They would be given categories for critical decisions, and they would fully outline and determine what type of presidency they would run.
Hopefuls who pass the test and planning phases would then be given a simulation to oversee in which their campaign decisions are acted out over the course of four in-game years. Whoever's society survives, thrives, and manages the least amount of strife and war should then be elected president.
