    This topic came up in another thread... if you could pick a person to be elected president in 2012, who would it be? Who would you follow, who is qualified (legally and conceptually), who is ready to do the job?

    Ignore electability potential. We all know the most qualified people won't run and couldn't get enough votes anyway. Just tell us who you would love to see in the Oval Office in 2012.

    1.Bill Maher - muahahaha
    2.The 14th Dalai Lama of Compassion (the guy is my hero)
    3.Mohammed Yusuf


    I know the last two aren't US Citizens to allay any attacks by nit-pickers based on that. This is purely hypothetical and for fun, in my case.

    O B A M A  at least in my lifetime.  I think he will turn out to be saving our Constitution when it hangs by a thread....if it isn't already.  I LIKE this man!

                I think Misha is true. No man and only ladies.
                If I am an American, my vote will go to George Washington. Because, being the first President, he showed the right way to his people and that is why America exists today. If he was another Hitler or Mussolini or even Stalin, America will not be there. Obama will go down on 20-1-2013 from American memory.

    Westley had great Political Prowess

    http://www.babble.com/CS/blogs/famecrawler/Princess-bride-cary-elwes-dread-pirate-roberts.jpg

    "Nonsense, you only say never, because no one ever has."

    "You mean you wish to surrender to me? Very well, I accept."

    "Once people hear you've gone soft, its nothing but work, work work all the time."

    "It's possible, Pig, I might be bluffing. It's conceivable, you miserable, vomitous mass..."

      I love it! As long as you're talking about Westley, and not just Carry Elwes, I'll give him my vote.

    If we can't have Westly, then my vote (don't have a vote, but if I did) goes for Obama. 

    As for the original question -- I don't dream about presidents.
