Why would anyone want to be President?


Regardless of which party you are on the other side is going to devote their entire existence to tearing you down and trying to make you out to be the second coming of Hitler himself, you have to deal with problems that have no good answer and no matter what you choose you're going to have half the country calling you an idiot for it, and it's clear by how quickly they age that its probably the most stressful job on the planet.

re: Why would anyone want to be President?


One of my colleagues believes that the people who want to be POTUS are good people who want to help. I believe at one point in our history this was true.

Currently (and in recent history) I say it's all about power and influence. Nothing more and nothing less.

Narcissism. Also, unless you have Ross Perot's kind of money, you have to suck to people you absolutely despise. The fact that you have raise a billion dollars means that you're left with people with some serious character flaws.

They want a spot in the underground cities.

A few people actually want to make a difference for the better.

Sadly those are the people left out of most ballots come election time.

Power.


There are Cartel drug lords that live very low profile lifestyles. When asked why they do what they do if they didn't what the lavish lifestyle, their reply was simply, "power".

I'm convinced the stressors that lead to that type of aging emanate from things taking place behind the scenes that most people are unaware.

Actually, I could withstand the anal exam of the opposition. I've lived the most innocent boring life one can live. My idea of going wild is having a 5 shot espresso instead of my usual quad.

I think most politicians get into it because they want to make a difference.

Yeah, right. Why don't you just say "they want to serve the public."

I said that's why they got into politics. I didn't say they remained that way once they were in politics for a while.

You are one jaded guy, Zach.

Zach prefers to call himself 'misanthropic', 'stultifying' or 'cynical.' Zach does not like Jade. Zach does not wear jewelry.

I think I would like to be president if for only to fix the massive problems that no one in our current government seems to have the power or desire to fix.

The personality type required to inspire a person to run for president is the exact personality type that should not be in that office.

I have this idea that if someone is serious, they will pledge to run for one term and not worry about re-election. But once they get in they always want to maintain the poshy lifestyle of being exempt from all the laws they pass.
