    Here's a point for you:



    Reality TV sucks



    All TV sucks.







    Move on with your lives people, nothing to see here.

    Well, the "reality show" bit was just a witty association I was attempting. The thing I was really getting at is the idea that- you may not like Bush, and you may not like Kerry, either. You say you could do a better job running the country, so isn't this your chance to anty up to that claim and shine? I was just wondering if there would be people seriously up for this challenge- someone "knowing" from AI, for instance. Clearly, there is active political exhange here by those who feel very confident about what they know, but how many of us feel bold enough to actually participate in something like this?

    I would be one who is not up for the job. I leave the politics up to the politicians. Yes, I'm interested, yes I'm involved, yes I vote, and yes I care, but I'm not cut out for something like that.

    God put me on this earth to fight fires and be a paramedic, not to be the leader of the free world.

    hmm, assuming this isn't an april fools joke. And assuming that it isn't going to be a ratings whore like american idol....



    This is actually a pretty intriguing idea, I mean heck, isn't that what democracy is about? voting to select who you think is best fit to represent your interests and all that.



    well, if anything, this could rekindle people's interest in the democratic system, and perhaps even get people interested in learning about this stuff.

    It is real. Showtime has been pumping this up for a few months now.



    This really depresses me. People would pretend to run for POTUS to get on tv, but they won't run for school board or city council and actually do something good.
