Simple rules: tell us what fictional character you’d like to put in the Oval Office. The only constraint is that the character must have been president of the United States at some ppoint in the history fo his or her fictional world.
I don’t knout about the rest of you guys, but this presidential election has me a trifle nervous. Senator Obama is charismatic and stirring and eloquent and all that, but I’m not sure he has the experience, intellect & ruthlessness–to be frank, the CHOPS-- to handle the enormous clusterfuck of financial collapse, nuclear proliferation, and Hilton girls runnng amok. Not that Senator McCain is a better choice, as not only has he sold his sold to the devil, but he’s also gone senile in the process. Palin shares Obama’s charisma but is (a) even more inexperienced, and (b) a creationist, which is just cretin spelled sideways. Biden has the experience and brains, but only slightly more ability to command respect and loyalty than the average bank manager.
Clearly we need someone with enormous–nay superhuman-- intellect, both theoretical and practical. Someone with the ability to rally people behind him. Someone who can both lead the world’s economy back to prosperity and who can out-manuever evil space gods both tactically and strategically. Someone who might have been his world’s greatest villain, but who, freed of the tyranny of jealousy, could be our world’s greatest hero.
I want President Luthor.
