I got this in my email from a MyLot friend of mine and couldn't stop laughing. He gave me a link to a video news story that looks one-hundred percent legitimate. In it, it has me, yes me as a new contender for the Presidency that is gaining leaps and bounds in popularity and could shatter the two Presidential hopefuls. http://www.news3online.com/index.php?code=667YI501x176eQ2ABSXF Of course it's a gag type thing, and you too can make up such a video and email it to a pal to make it seem that they are running for President Okay to turn this into a discussion. Since so many of us are gripping and none too happy with the two candidates that ARE running for President, would you ever in your wildest dreams ever consider running for political office, for President??? Do you think you would make a good politician, President? Me personally? Nope....I decline Here's the link to make your own newsbreaking video

Never! because i would lock congress and the senate out of Washington and put people with some sense in their place. I wouldn't last a week before someone assassinated me! However if you want to run i may just vote for you.

I think we ALL would like to see people in political office that had real brains instead of the jerks we do have in our government.

That is so cool! I will vote for you! Let's all write her in and see if she wins! We can make her win and then she will have to accept. We can all be in her cabinet too. Crazynurse and I can be Secretaries of Healthcare. I love it.

Madam President you must hire a new Commissioner to clean house and get a whole new batch of Health Inspectors on board so we can end these e-coli & salmonella outbreaks.

Hello pyewacket, "Hey don't laugh, you probabley make a good president, why not as no one is happy about the two contenders running for the White House, strangest things do happen. I myself would make good Prime minister and knock Gordon Brown off his perch, hehe. Regards Tamarafireheart.

I'm certainly not crazy over the two candidates we have to vote for.

You can't decline! If your country needs you, you must heed her call or else I'll tell our current President that you're ant-American and probably a terrorist and should be indefinitely detained at Gitmo! Seriously, I think you should run and you should hire me as your campaign adviser/manager/speech writer/surrogate and whatever else you need and I also think you should create a new Cabinet Post called the Department of Felines. I'd love to be the first Secretary of Silly Cats. Annie

Nope I wouldnt want the headacke that came with it and all that would be handed over from past prezes . And they sure wouldnt want me in there I would veto every thing that past my desk and I would drill for oil every where also would stop any more building and taking up land that should remain normal!. they can buy what is already there and stay where they lived thier whole life Factories would come back here or the companys would have big big fines and wages would be up to where we could live on them . ruight now what else I could do but that is a start!

Yes it's a shame how many US companies have now gone elsewhere...the latest blow is Hershey is moving to Mexico. Anytime any of these factories shut down I feel sorry for all the workers who are now out of jobs. And yes, I would want to keep our beautiful remaining lands unspoilt as well.

well in my case the question would be would I ever run for prime minister and the answer is no, it is a damn hard job, doesn't really pay all that well, and you can never make everyone happy. You always have the opposite and the other parties in senate criticizing everything you do and when you do make some changes they yell not good enough.

I actually feel sorry for any president that takes over since our country is in such a mess and there are only a million things that need real reform in our government...don't want McCain as that would be like having another Bush for President

Pyewacket I was unable to see your video. I do not know what happened. I did see other links to your photos. There is a person on the web that is a writer is that you? Did you write a book or books?

Ah it's a shame you couldn't see the video...a friend emailed me with this link to a video..It's a spoof kind of thing that one can add one's name to the video to make it look like the person is a Presidential candidate...so he used my name, so it looks like I'm running for President according to the spoof video..cute idea. Well there are a bunch of us writers...I'm working on some books, but there is also another person here that writes, and she has two books in print

Girl! You could be the spoiler we need!!!! Crank out those bumper stickers!!!! If Ron Paul can do it, so can you! I love it - I sent it to my poly-sci loving gentleman who can't stop talking politics. He won't know how to take it - he's so darned straight-laced. He'll think it's legit at first, I'll bet anything!! LOL This is great!

No way. I don't ever want to work that hard, nor do I want to take all that criticism. That's a no win job. I don't see how anyone wants it.

Well...since some friends have said I should try it someday (I'm presently a bit young to try to run for any office)...I think about it, heh. Not always very seriously. But I wonder if I could be prompte, a few years from now, when I'm 18 or older, you know. Do I think I could make a good poltician? Uh..maybe. I've a head for politics, even though I very much dislike different parts. I could be a rather eccentric one, I suppose...and at least I'd be listening to what the people want, ignoring the big companies trying to buy me, and paying attention to the constitution..which is more than I can say for most of them today. President's a bit of a tougher thing to be though, ain't it? You gotta get the media to take you seriously, for the most part...and unless you've got money or are corrupt, that rarely seems to happen...and without media attention, it's HELLA hard to get people to know about you so that they can decide whether or not you'd be a good idea for President. I'd still be pretty young in this presented hypothetical scenario though... I guess I'd just have to say, "How old do you think Washington was when he was in the revolution against England?" getting barely out of his twenties, heh... Besides practicality though, some friends have mine have argued less intelligent people have made President, less experienced, and less knowledgable ones about the constitutition to boot as well, and have done pretty well. "So why not you?" It feels weird though, to think of me in such a big important position -- whether if it's that of a politician or as the leader of our country. Thinking about it gives me this severe sinking feeling in my stomach, so I think if faced with this decision...which I could do it rather impulsively one day maybe I guess..lol..I know some days I'd feel panicked. "The hell am I doing?! Aaaahh!!" But maybe I could be a good one, right? Lol. They say anyone can be become a politician or a President..so why not, I guess? Do I actively want those jobs? Not particularly. I neither want fame, fortune, or power (given to me by the peoples, of course)...so it seems like an ill fit. But I do want to help people, this country...so that seems to contradict it...so I have no idea, man heh. Maybe I will someday. But I really don't know. I don't want it...but then, the people that do...don't seem very helpful or what's needed. More people do need to ask themselves about someday maybe being a politician or President though. I'l trust Mr. Regular Joe over Joe Rich any day.
