Would you like to be elected president of this country? Why? If so, would you still choose to be president if it meant that your sleep would always be very fitful and disturbed, punctuated by frequent nightmares?
I deal with enough drama, I don’t need to be the center of attention for every news cycle in the United States.
I wouldn’t want to hold any public office higher than the local level. I’ll admit, I’ve toyed with the idea of what it could be like to be on town council (when I was living in Blacksburg) or city council (now that I’m living in Roanoke). Until there are serious reforms (such as term limits) in the legislative branch, I wouldn’t want to be a part of a system that is about as broken as it can get and still somehow manage to keep the lights on.
Would you want to be president (or for our friends to the north, Prime Minister… also our friends across the pond…)? Let me know what you think down in the comments!
