    Who is the ideal person for U.S. President today?

    Considering the many issues in America and the nation's importance in the world, who has the right thinking, political leverage, and overall savvy to restore honor to the office and respect from American citizens and world watchers?

    The ideal person to be president today as always would be Hillary Clinton,but since she is not going to be president until 2016,the next best choice is Obama who in my opinion will keep the seat warm for her until then.

    I think Obama is still the man, he may be elected again.   I think people who voted for him the first time still have faith in him.  I think the "good ole boy" attitude of our government parties is not going to survive another 4 years if Obama were to be re-elected.  I think voters will be more proactive when they start seeing more of the same political power struggles and stubborness.  Besides Obama's name is cool and sounds powerful, Newt and Mit who is going to repect them?

    The answer to this question is a simple no one.
    We don't have any worthwhile substitute, and the current president has shown by doing the presidency that he is clearly not  the one.

    The two major political parties have not given the country a good selection of politicians to choose from over the last several decades. Allowing these parties to make the initial choices for candidates, gives the voters the choice of the lesser evil or lesser incompetent.

    Incumbents should only be re-elected based on stellar record of accomplishments.
    Accomplishments are acts that resulted in something good that moved the country forward, and not simple rhetoric or slick talk, or passing bills that won't even take effect until sometime past the term of the politician.

    Obamacare is an example, because it has only stirred the pot with confusion rather than something beneficial. Mitt Romney had too much trouble just outdistancing his mediocre competition.

    To find the ideal president as well as the ideal politician we need to create and follow a strong independence in voting  Forget about party lines, and vote for the best candidates, and then vote them out of office, if they can't work together for the good of the people of this country. This can't happen with candidates that have to be loyal to their party.

    It has been shown empirically over the last one hundred years that the political party competition has produced the pathetic condition of this country. Regardless of the party that has the steering wheel running the country, there is only movement left or right, and no forward movement. Although there has been slides backwards.

    Take a monkey up in an airplane, push it out, and the first person that the monkey walks up to....is the new president of the U.S.
