    One that follows the Constitution to the letter, and vetos anything not specifically written in it.

    A super computer that analyzed every problem in the united states and came up with excellent solutions to correct the problems.  It would consider human rights, analyze and help all USA industrys and companys and whatever else needs to be done.  It would be programmed by people with very high integrity. This computer would out think any man.

    One with something that we will never see in a politician, "HONESTY".

    One that follows the Constitution, and who is trying to do the best for everybody not just their party's base.  In the divided country that we live in, it would be nice to have a president (and all politicians) that really could unite and was not out to score points to get re-elected.  A candidate runs for office representing a political party.  The winner fulfills the duties of the office representing all of the people.

    Honesty is a virtue, yes, however the simple fact is that politicians will lie and sometimes use their lies for the benefit of the United States. A good example: 'honest' Abe lied about sending weaponry to Fort Sumter which they desperately needed to end the confederate siege.
    As for the perfect candidate:
    Businessman; they must know how to manage money properly and appropriate finances to capable personnel in their cabinet/staff.
    Charismatic; must be presentable and know how to speak to both liberals and conservatives in a way that doesn't offend anyone.
    Intelligent; the man must know what he's doing (or woman). He/she must be able to plan ahead and see out that his/her ideas are practical and reasonable.
    Daring; we can't have a push over. We need someone who's willing to push us to the limit of what we can accomplish and is eager to get us there.
    Moral; we look toward our leaders as an example of what we as citizens could accomplish. The president would have to be someone with the intentions of the country on their minds.

    A president should be a head of state, like a monarch. But with no real powers over life and death, war and peace, wealth, poverty etc.

    They should work about fifty minute a day; they will do less damage that way.

    When it comes to government, less is better than more.

    The trouble with democracy is people know they can steal the countries treasure by electing the thief which promises them the most booty.

    Some unborn voter will pay in the future.

    My ideal president just wouldn't be an ideologue. He/She wouldn't care about capitalism or socialism or any kind of ism. He/She would do what works. It doesn't really matter though because the people are the problem. The say they want honesty but as soon as anyone gives it to'em, they want to tear their heads off 'cause honesty sometimes isn't pretty. Some political partisan will jump on that and feed the flames and the people will eat it up.

    The people will never be honest with themselves about themselves so it doesn't matter what qualities a president has. Look at how dems and repubs say they're tired of status quo but as soon as someone else tips the scales to take votes away from one of the major parties, do they add their weight to the scale? Of course not. They show their true colors and jump aboard the winning teams scale. You can't ever leave the gang. We've probably had some ideal presidents already. They just couldn't get anything done because they people had to play the game because the people don't want to deal with harsh realities. -shrugs-

    Personally, an "ideal president" has never come to mind.

    About the only things I want a president to do is effectively command the U.S. Armed Forces and do a real good job of overseeing U.S. foreign affairs.

    In the UK we do not have a president but it would have to be someone honest and who will do what they say they will do pre-election. Unfortunately people like this are few and far between. Most just lie to get elected then go against those promises when they are in power.
